A primary benefit of a 1:1 iPad program is access to high-quality digital curriculum.
- Information about textbook purchasing is released mid-summer. Please see your June mailing for more information.
"My son has become more engaged with his school work when using the iPad. The technology clearly speaks to his generation as they are able to have a creative outlet in any educational discipline. I am thankful for the iPad addition to our school and look forward to its success at the high school level."
There are many reasons why this benefits our families:
- The iPad reduces four-year high school cost of textbooks for VCHS families. These costs climbed each year, with some families paying over $1,000 for senior textbooks alone.
- Many of these digital textbooks have interactive components, including embedded videos, self-guided quizzes, built-in study tools, and other resources that enhance the student’s understanding of the material.
- Digital Textbooks on an iPad are more portable than traditional textbooks in a backpack and afford students quicker and easier access whenever and wherever they need it.
