In preparation for a district-wide tech inventory this summer, Austin ISD is asking students and families to return ALL tech devices-iPads, laptops, charging cords, hotspots, iPad cases, etc-to their campuses. Tech devices for summer use will be checked out starting May 26. This applies to ALL tech equipment received from the district, during this school year or past years.
NOTE: All Austin ISD student tech devices will be disabled starting Thursday, May 25 at 5:00pm.
It is essential to gather all of the district's student tech devices so that the district can conduct an inventory and get the equipment ready for students in the fall.
EXCEPTIONS: This does NOT affect Special Education-specific devices that are checked out through that department. If a device is needed for a Dual Credit/ACC course, devices will be distributed to students the last week of school. Devices for on-campus summer programs will be provided.
SUMMER DEVICES: We understand how this may affect students during the summer. If your student needs a device during summer use, including Garza Online classes, Parents or guardians can complete an OPT-IN form via their Parent Portal account to request a device. Devices will be available for pick-up on May 26, and May 30 through June 2, from 7:30am to 5:00pm. Pickup locations will be Gus Garcia YMLA or at the Austin ISD Central Office. During device pickups, fee schedule forms and accountability acknowledgements will also be provided. Summer devices must be returned to the student's home campus at the start of the Fall 2023 school year.
QUESTIONS? - If any lost equipment is found over the summer, or for questions, please call the Austin ISD Help Desk at 512-414-9187.
