Will there be any fees assessed to my student's account for using a District device?
Yes, the K-5 students are given a $12.50 fee for the first quarter. Additionally a $37.50 Online Learning fee will be added for each K-5 student in case they choose to remain at home after QTR 1.
All students 6th thru 12th grades will be charged the $50 laptop fee. PLEASE NOTE: This fee is not subject to waivers.
How am I able to pay for my student's fees?
For your convenience, the Florence Unified School District No. 1 offers a free, secure electronic payment system for athletic fees, field trips, class fees and much more. You may also contribute to the many extra-curricular activity (ECA) tax credit programs. To view the instructions for online payments please click here.
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.
