Why do students need Chromebooks?
We are preparing students for tomorrow’s workforce. They are learning skills that will help them get higher paying jobs when they graduate. Additionally, the students are becoming organized and are able to better keep up with their school work. Also, students have most of their textbooks online. Students are able to access resources online that they wouldn’t be able to have if there were no devices.
Why do I have to pay a coverage fee?
There is an annual coverage fee that must be paid before a student can pick up his or her Chromebook. This fee covers 1) accidental damage (including drops, cracked screens, liquid spills), 2) fire/flood, 3) vandalism (police report required), 4) theft (police report required), 5) liquid submersion, 6) power surges due to lightning, 7) natural disasters, and 8) mechanical failure.
How much does it cost?
The annual coverage cost is $20 for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors and $15 for seniors.
Is there a payment plan?
We do not offer a payment plan.
How can I pay for the coverage?
What if I can’t afford the fee?
We do not have scholarships this year, but you can visit with your student’s principal about your situation. Call the high school at 254-215-7000 to make an appointment with the appropriate assistant principal. Principals are assigned by alphabet:
