PITTSBURGH -- If you wish to keep your district-issued iPad, you must purchase it from NHSD using the MySchoolBucks portal. The purchase price is $100 plus tax. You can use your MySchoolBucks account if you have one, or check out as a guest.

iPad Asset TagYou must enter the iPad’s asset tag exactly as it appears on the back of the device. Please include all letters and numbers and double check for accuracy. It is extremely important that this tag is entered correctly. We also need the student’s name and NHSD-issued email address.

The iPad currently assigned to the student is the only iPad that can be purchased. iPads cannot be traded in for a different version. All iPads are $100 regardless of the version. The purchase includes the iPad's case. If you do not purchase the iPad through the MySchoolBucks portal, it must be returned. Click here to purchase your iPad.

If you have multiple students with iPads and want to purchase them all, you must add each iPad, with its unique asset tag, to your MySchoolBucks cart individually. You can then navigate to your cart to check out in one transaction.

Your device will be wiped remotely and removed from our system once we process the purchase. However, this will not happen until the week of June 1 at the earliest. Entering the correct asset tag will help expedite this process. If your iPad's asset tag has been torn off, please enter the serial number instead. The serial number can be found on the device under Settings > General > About. If we do not have the iPad's correct asset tag or serial number, we cannot wipe it and remove it from our device management system.

Please note: Once the iPad is wiped, it is no longer an NHSD device and all district-owned apps will no longer be installed. This includes the Self Service app. Families will have to download all apps using a personal Apple ID in the App store as they would if they purchased a new, personal iPad.

Your iPad must be either turned in or purchased by June 15. If you do not do either by June 15, you will be billed for the device.
