ATHENS, Ala. — Athens City Schools has been impacted by a back-order of iPads for the 2020-21 school year due to an increase in demand from COVID-19 and will only be able to provide devices to students in need.
"Our first priority is to issue devices to remote students who do not have a device available for use at home," the district said in a Facebook post. "Traditional students will continue to have access to devices during school hours."
The district is asking families to submit a technology survey to help determine how to most effectively distribute devices. The deadline to complete the survey is 5 p.m. on August 10.

Additionally, the district said it will not be charging user fees for the devices until all the new iPads have arrived and been issued.
