iPads are being distributed to the following groups of students:
- All K-12 students new to the Shrewsbury Public Schools
- Students entering kindergarten
- Students entering grade 1 who attend Coolidge, Floral Street, Paton, and Spring Street
- Students entering grade 5
- Students entering grade 9
All other students will continue to use the iPad they currently have.
We will be holding iPad distribution sessions by appointment running through the end of August. During this appointment, families will receive the iPad, protective case, charging cable, charger, and personalized step-by-step setup instructions. Distribution sessions will be held at Shrewsbury High School.

Similar to how students and their families are responsible for textbooks or other equipment issued to the student, families are responsible for protecting the iPad and are liable for any and all damage to, theft of, or loss of the device, accidental or otherwise. We strongly recommend that you purchase insurance for your child’s school iPad. More information and a link to purchase insurance can be found on our Private iPad Insurance page.
For all returning students in the groups above who still have their iPad from last year:
During these sessions, we will also be collecting last year’s iPads. Please bring your child’s iPad, charger, cable, and case. Please erase your child’s iPad by going to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings. Please note that we are only able to accept genuine Apple iPad chargers and charging cables. We will issue written return receipts for items returned.
Additional information and answers to frequently asked questions can be found on our 1:1 Technology Program page.
