WHAT IS THE "TECH" and "CLASS" FEE FOR?

====TECH-IT-HOME FEE====

The $20 "Tech-It-Home" fee is a non-refundable fee set by SDPC for 2021-2022. Every student who uses a Chromebook is required to pay this fee at the beginning of every school year during registration or when a new student enrolls. That $20 "Tech-It-Home" fee covers accidental damage to Chromebook devices. It's like insurance.


====CLASS FEE====

The $6.00 "Class" fee is a non-refundable fee set by SDPC for 2021-2022. Every student pays a "Class" fee every school year or when a new student registers. This "Class" fee helps to cover the cost of things like the first student ID issued, the first student agenda issued, class activities such as homecoming, prom, senior activities, and/or graduation expenses.


HOW DO I PAY THE FEE(s)?

(1) Pay through My School Bucks: the most convenient way for most families to pay fees is MySchoolBucks (MSB). There is no longer an extra fee to use this convenient service. All of the fees listed above have been invoiced in MSB. Log in to MySchoolBucks.com or use the app on your smartphone to take care of fees right away.

(2) Pay in person: We also accept payment in person by cash, check, or card. If you prefer to mail a check, make it out to Easley High School. Please put your students name in the memo section and mail it to 154 GREEN WAVE BLVD, EASLEY SC 29642.


WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND IT OR PAY THE FEE?

Unpaid fees carry over every year until the student transfers or graduates at which time the total amount is due in full. Students who owe fees will lose privileges such as parking on campus, attending prom, going to sporting events, etc. Seniors with unpaid fees are not given their diploma at graduation or given transcripts until all school-owned materials are returned or replacement fees paid.


IF YOUR FAMILY IS EXPERIENCING ECONOMIC HARDHSIP, PLEASE GIVE US A CALL AT (864) 397-3100. YOUR WELL-BEING AND PRIVACY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY.


*** WE ARE HERE TO HELP ***

If you still need help with paying fees or MySchoolBucks, please call (964) 397-3100 ext. 3102 -- or -- willagleason@pickens.k12.sc.us
