Student iPads & Textbooks

iPad Requirements

To ensure student success, all students are required to have an iPad or iPad Mini that can be updated to iOS version 11 or later, and has at least 32GB of memory.

**It is strongly recommended that a case is purchased as well as either Apple Care or another warranty. For security reasons, please set up “Find my iPad," have a lock screen code, and label the iPad with your name and school email address.**

iPad App Requirements

All students are required to have the following applications (apps) purchased and installed on their iPad before the first day of school/new student orientation in preparation for using them during the school year. In addition, please note the use of VPNs while using DePaul College Prep’s network is a violation of the Acceptable Use Policy included in the Parent/Student Handbook as it poses a risk to the security and integrity of the school’s network.

Apps: 
  Schoology (Free)

This is the school’s Learning Management System (LMS), where students and parents access information for all classes, upload homework and assignments, receive messages from teachers and school administrators, and connect with clubs and team groups. Freshmen and transfer students, along with new parents, will receive login information at New Student Orientation. All returning students and parents should already have their login information; if you do not, or do not remember, see the Technology Department for assistance.

  Google Drive (Free)

All students will be provided with an @depaulprep.org email address. It is expected that this email is used for anything relating to DePaul College Prep. Freshmen and transfer students will receive their login information in an early summer mailing with school information. All returning students should already have their login information; if you do not, or do not remember, see the Technology Department for assistance. Google Drive and all related Google Apps should be set up using this email address.

  Google Docs (Free)

The word processor of the Google Suite. Part of Google Drive, but this is a separate download.

  Google Sheets (Free)

The spreadsheet creator of the Google Suite. Part of Google Drive, but this is a separate download.

  Google Slides (Free)

The power-point creator of the Google Suite. Part of Google Drive, but this is a separate download.

  Notability ($9.99, prices may vary)

This will be used in all classes for note-taking and the completion of numerous assignments throughout the school year. The app is very versatile allowing for typed or handwritten notes, embedding photos, highlighting within student created notes and downloaded PDFs, and much more.
 

Other apps will be required for specific classes. These apps will be included in the mailing that will be sent out mid-July regarding the purchase of textbooks for the upcoming school year. Additionally, teachers will provide this information on their syllabus or as needed.


Ordering Textbooks & Required Books

To ensure student success, all students are required to purchase texts by the first day of school. For eTexts, we suggest purchasing on the iPad you will be using at school.

  1. Take a look at your schedule (emailed out). Write down the three-digit Course Numbers that correspond to your classes. You can also find your Course Numbers in the 2019-20 Course Selection Guide. (i.e. The Course Number for English 1 (Honors) is /015).
  2. Find the tabs below by Department. Click-through and browse each department to find all required books for your courses. All books listed for your course will have the preferred format (i.e. paperback, hardcover, or eText) and a direct link to purchase the course text from the suggested vendor.
  3. See below for further direction on ordering eTexts from the various suggested vendors, if needed.

**Please note: The textbook tables below are best viewed on a desktop or tablet, with larger viewing capabilities.

2019-20 Textbooks

Please note: if there is no book listed for your course, or your course is not listed here, there is no required textbook for the course at this time. Teachers may give updated information on other required texts in their course syllabuses and on the first day of school.
