Parent Password for Student One2One Laptop
The American Academy IT Department does not allow students to access Settings on their One2One laptops. Students will not be able to install a home printer because of this reduced access. Students have access to the school printers and all campuses even have a dedicated printer just for students. Please encourage your students to complete all of their printing needs at school. An alternative option is to login to their school account on a personal device at home and print to your home printer. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please email the IT Department.
Internet Web Filtering
ALL American Academy issued laptops are filtered and monitored while at school as well as 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,
8th Graders --> The cost is $20. Please email your respective campus IT department or have the student bring the payment to the IT Office and we will provide you with a charger.
6th - 7th Graders--> The cost is $40 (newer USB-C model charger). Please email your respective campus IT department or have the student bring the payment to the IT Office and we will provide you with a charger.
If you need to replace the power adapter (lost, damaged) that came with the school laptop, please ask your student to visit the IT Office for a replacement. A fee will be charged - please send in cash or check payable to American Academy.
All power cords purchased MUST 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
