The required One2One forms can be found below. Parents will be required to sign each form for every 5th - 8th Grade student during American Academy's School Registration in August.
Parent Password for Student One2One Laptop
The American Academy IT Department does not allow students to install software on their One2One laptops. For this reason, students are not be able to install the printer drivers required for them to use printers outside of American Academy's network. However, parents CAN install those printer drivers with a special parent user account called "PARENT.” An email with the appropriate login information will be sent to all parent email addresses on file with the school the week of August 27, 2018. Please refer to this email for your PARENT account password and instructions. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please email the IT Department.
Internet Web Filtering
Over the 2018 summer, American Academy invested in new web filtering and internet monitoring technology. ALL American Academy issued laptops will continue to be filtered and monitored when away from the school network. The American Academy internet filter will be in use on any wifi network the laptop connects to.
Lenovo Power Adapters
If you wish to purchase a second power adapter for your student's One2One laptop, the Lenovo part number is 0B47030 and the item is ThinkPad 45W AC Adapter Slim Tip. You can purchase it from the Lenovo online store.
All power cords purchased should be the genuine Lenovo brand. Please do not substitute with "generic" brands since this can cause permanent damage to the laptop.
It is strongly encouraged that students and parents review the One2One FAQ
