Will there be any fees assessed to my student's account for using a District device?

How can I avoid having the usage fees?
Students can, and are encouraged, to utilize our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Innitiative by using a personal device, if available to them. If a personal device is available, and will be used, the student needs to notify their home school they will be doing BYOD. The home school will then notify District that the student was not issued a District Chromebook and the usage fee, $12.50 for the first quarter for K-5 students and $50 for 6th thru 12th students, will be removed from the account. If something happens to the personal device being used, and nothing else is available, the student will need to obtain a District device and any applicable fees will be added to their account.
