iPad Support


Faribault Public Schools recognizes that the implementation of a 1:1 technology learning initiative requires a need to protect the investment by both the district and families. Faribault Public Schools is offering an iPad Protection Plan to help cover the cost of accidental breakage or damage. Enrollment in the plan is optional. 

Starting in school year 21-22, 6th-12th grade students will take iPads home, 5th grade students will gain more 'at home' access through the year, and students 4th grade and younger will not take iPads home. Therefore we are offering participation in an iPad protection plan for students 6-12. This plan is an annual payment of $15 with a maximum family cap of $30 and covers one accidental damage per device per year  See our iPad FAQs in English, Spanish, and Somali, or our complete iPad Loan Agreement, for more detail. 

iPad payments can be made online through the Infinite Campus portal.  

If you have any questions about the Protection Plan, call (507)333-6063 or email



Amount: $15.00 for each student with maximum family cap of $30.00
