Parent Letter

May 13, 2015

Dear Chisholm Middle School Parents/Guardians:

I am excited to announce that next school year your

Chisholm Middle School student will be able to use their

school issued device (7th graders: iPads and 8th graders:laptops) at school and at home. 

After our initial year of the 1:1 technology initiative at Chisholm Middle School we found that

one of the components we were missing was for students to use the technology

at home for continued learning. In order to make this possible

the Board of Education has approved a Technology Usage Fee.

The purpose of the technology fee is to protect and maintain the

investment the district has made in the devices for student use at school and home.

Normal wear and tear happens each year which requires

repair and maintenance. Sending devices home increases the wear and tear

and possibility of damage. The fee helps ensure the district can

maintain, repair, and replace these devices for current and future student use. 

The technology usage fee is $50 per student per year.

Students who qualify for reduced fees will pay $30.

Students who qualify for free/no fees will pay $20.

The Technology Usage Fee will be part of the enrollment fees

for Chisholm Middle School students. Another reminder will be sent

prior to online enrollment in July along with information regarding

a required parent meeting to go over the Chisholm Middle School

Device Handbook which includes expectations, responsibilities,

and more in depth information about taking the devices home. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
