BYO iPad Program Requirements


​The initiative is designed to ensure that all students have the opportunity to be immersed in a technology rich teaching and learning environment. The program is striving to be affordable for all parents while at the same time enhancing ICT learning opportunities for all students.

Albany Creek State High School introduced a BYO iPad Program to all students in years 7, 8 and 9 in 2015.

As part of the roll out of the BYO iPad Program at the school we are preparing a number of "How To" documents to assist parents and students to set up their devices.

Important Steps

To assist you to prepare your iPad for use in the Albany Creek SHS BYO iPad Program for Year 7, 8 and 9 there are a number of important steps to follow.

1/ If you don't already own a suitable iPad purchase one from a retailer of your choice.

2/ Download and where necessary purchase the apps found in the Albany Creek SHS Apps List.

3/ Purchase a subscription for the Jacaranda Digital Textbook Pack. (A link to the Jacaranda Payment Portal will be added to this site soon.)

4/ Set up your iPad to join the Albany Creek SHS network environment. A "How To" document has been prepared to assist you with this step.
