Devices to Support Learning

  • What if my student is a Remote Learner but does not have a device at home?

    If a student does not have a computer or device at home, devices will be available for student check-out (subject to availability). Parents/guardians must let their school know that their student needs a device. Once your device is ready for check-out, you will be notified by your school.

    These devices are to be used for educational purposes only. Off-campus students will be required to follow the same rules and procedures that are required for using a TCSS-owned device on-campus. 

    I want to purchase a device to support my student’s learning. What should I buy?

    Windows-based personal computer – desktop or laptop

    Apple device – iPad, Mac laptop or desktop

    iPads should be 5th generation or higher. iPad Minis should be 4th or 5th generation. iPad Air should be 2nd or 3rd generation.

    We do not recommend a Chromebook because we are not a Google for Education district and cannot support those devices. A smart phone is also not an appropriate device.

    Below is a list of the devices we use in our schools:

    • iPad 7th Generation 32 GB Wifi

           Logitech Rugged Combo 3 Keyboard/Case

    • MacBook Air with Retina Display (13”)

           8 GB RAM

           256 GB Storage

    • iMac (Desktop)

           21.5” Display

           8GB RAM

           256GB SSD for storage

    We recommend AppleCare+ for all Apple devices.
