Student Device Fees
This year, all students in grades K-12 have the opportunity to check out a district-owned device for use at school and at home. Anticipating that all students will get a district-owned device, the district adds a fee of $20 to students’ Online Payment accounts (maximum fee of $60 per family per school year) to enroll them in the Damage Loss Protection Program. This fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form. Students need to pay the assigned fee prior to any damage or loss claims to be eligible for the Protection Program coverage and no later than 30 days after they begin school.
Students may choose to decline coverage, but this is not recommended, because the family is assuming full responsibility for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it happens.
Parents will have the option to opt in or opt out of the Protection Program during the Online Verification process that parents are required to complete in ParentVue each fall.
Student Success Kits
During our Back to School Drive-Thru Meet and Greet on Sept. 17, we will be passing out Back to School Student Success Kits filled with the following:
- pens and pencils
- spiral notebooks
- colored markers
- glue stick
- small dry-erase board with dry-erase marker
Family Toolkit Resources
In the District-wide Volunteer Management System (myimpactpage.com), all volunteers need to first complete an application and background check to create a profile in the system. Once a profile is created, volunteers will be able to update personal information, view and sign-up for open volunteer needs, and communicate directly with the school Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteers will be able to use this profile from their first volunteer activity to their last.
