Technology Device Distribution

Message from the Tech Team!


QCSD families,

We hope you are enjoying your summer and staying cool! Technology has been working hard to prepare student devices for the upcoming year. As the new school year approaches, here are some important things to keep in mind:

  • At the time of Returning Student Enrollment in August, you will be presented with the option to purchase Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) for $25/device. Please click here or see attachment below for more details on the ADP program.
  • Students that are new to QCSD will have an opportunity to pick up their devices from the District Office. Kindergarten students will have their I-Pads distributed in school.
  • Students going into 1st, 2nd and 9th grade will be issued a new device. 1st and 2nd grade pick-ups will be on Monday 8/22 from 3-6PM and Tuesday 8/23 7:30 AM-9:30AM and 11:30-2:00PM. Please note:
    • All outstanding invoices must be paid prior to receiving their new device.
    • If your student still has a device from the prior year, that device must be turned in prior to receiving a new one.
    • Students missing the charger will be charged a replacement fee. iPad chargers are $40 and Chromebook chargers are $20.

Please feel free to reach out to us at QCSDtechsupport@qcsd.org with any questions.
