Digital Learning Letter

Dear Middle School Families,

AIS - West is pleased to continue the successful "Digital Learning Environment" (DLE) program in the Middle School in the 2020-2021 school year. Students and their families are asked to purchase an iPad Pro, 128 GB (your choice of screen size 9.7 inch or 12.9 inch). This decision will allow our students to continue to be connected to the AIS West G Suite, school email, and other AIS educational resources. Students are expected to bring their fully charged device with them to school every day. 

All students are required to download the apps listed below on their iPads.



Google Classroom

Google Calendar

Google Docs

Google Sheets

Google Slides

Google Drive

Google Earth

Each student needs to know their Apple ID username and password.  We highly recommend setting up a separate iTunes account that limits the ability to spend freely. Apple has created a method for you to manage your child’s Apple ID. Click here for more information on Family Sharing and Apple ID for your child.  Click here for set up support.

This Middle School DLE program has impacted student learning in numerous areas, including access to and delivery of material, the submission of work, teacher feedback, the development of organizational skills, and the cultivation of essential 21st century technological skills.  We’re excited to continue this journey in learning
