Student Technology Fees & Charges

Device/Cords/Damages

 

Iredell-Statesville Schools students who are participating in our 1:1 initiative and are issued a personal device (iPad and/or MacBook) are subject to the following fees:

 

To help sustain the technology investment from grant and district funds, Iredell-Statesville Schools is implementing a technology usage fee. Similar to several North Carolina school districts, Iredell-Statesville Schools has implemented a technology usage fee at our schools.

 

The technology usage fee of $50 will apply for this school year. Anyone seeking a fee reduction should contact the school principal for qualification information. All students/parents must have the Iredell-Statesville Schools Technology Usage Fee Form prior to technology devices being issued.

 

In addition to the Technology Fees, students (and parents) are responsible for charges incurred due to lost cords, stolen or lost devices, and machine damages and repair costs. In an effort to ensure a balance between compliance, fairness, and awareness of student/parent hardship, Iredell-Statesville Schools provides the following guidance for schools in working with students and parents regarding technology charges:
