b2ap3 thumbnail WCSWelcome from the WCS Technology Department
Our mission is to accelerate learning through the use of technology as we inspire and equip families, students and staff.
If your child is in grades 5-12, we urge you to consider purchasing insurance to cover any damages or theft of the student’s 1:1 device in order to protect your family from repairs and replacement costs of up to $314. Insurance must be purchased each year for each device, and may be purchased here. The deadline to purchase insurance is 9/17/2018 for the 2018-2019 school year.
There are many free or discounted services for families in our area.  Today, I'd like to highlight a few.

Warsaw Community Public Library
Free Student Library Card

From the https://www.warsawlibrary.org/getacard/ 

Library cards are free to students (5 years of age through college) students living in the Warsaw Community Schools service area. It doesn't matter if the student attends public school, private school, home schooled, or a college located in our school district. Parents/guardians proof of address will be verified that the student is living in the school district -- they no longer have to bring their student ID or a letter from the school administrator. If a student is attending the Warsaw Community School system while living outside the district, they present proof of current enrollment in the school (letter from the school administrator dated within the past 60 days, a school photo ID card, or the most current grade card). Cards are valid for one year and must be renewed annually.

This message is to share some important information regarding our 1:1 iPad Program at Warsaw Community Schools, e3 Tiger Tech.  First, this Friday, September 1, 2017 is the deadline to purchase iPad insurance for the 2017-2018 school year.  Insurance for each student device in grades 5-12 is strongly encouraged for all families and must be purchased each year.  It is a $0 deductible plan, so there are no costs to the parent if there is accidental damage to the iPad, or it is stolen or vandalized.  Costs for those without insurance can run hundreds of dollars per incident, so please consider making this purchase.  The web site to sign up for insurance is: https://www.worthavegroup.com/gpo/warsawk12  for more information, read the article here: http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us/departments/technology/entry/1-1-insurance-for-the-2017-2018-school-year

Next, we've recorded a video to tell you more about our 1:1 program.  For that video, click here: https://wcs.techsmithrelay.com/LTqU

Finally, this past summer, we hosted a community Internet safety night.  We had great presentations from national speaker, Kevin Honeycutt and the Indiana State Police.  You may view that video here: https://wcs.techsmithrelay.com/Qo42

It's our honor to serve you!  On behalf of the entire technology team, we hope that you have a great school year!

Sincerely,

Brad Hagg
