Families with a full-time student enrolled with TEACH-NW Homeschool have the option of leasing a Chromebook or iPad. iPads are currently only issued to children in grades to K-3.
Chromebooks or iPads are available for full-time students enrolled in TEACH-NW Virtual Charter School or the TEACH-NW Alternative School. An amount of $150 will be deducted from the student’s allotment each year for Chromebooks and $200 per year for iPads (K-3 only). There are no out-of-pocket expenses to the family until the end of year two. See below (End of Year Two).**
At the end of the school year, the following options are available for purchase:
End of Year One: You may purchase the Chromebook for $150 or the iPad for $200 or return the device.
End of Year Two: You may purchase the device for $1 or return the device.
A signed Equipment Agreement is required before any equipment is distributed.
