General Fees

In order to provide a more robust program, including enhanced filtering for student devices, BISD charges an annual technology usage fee. The fee schedule is as follows:

  • $30 per student per year with a maximum fee of $50 per family
  • $15 per student per year for students who qualify and receive reduced school lunch
  • $0 per student per year for students who qualify and receive free school lunch

We understand that the beginning of school can be costly for families. To help, parents have the option to delay payment of the technology usage fee until October 1, 2017. If this fee creates a financial hardship, parents may contact their student’s campus for options to assist with payment.

Only students receiving a district issued take-home device will be charged the technology usage fee.


Damage Fees

Having piloted a 1:1 environment at several campuses over the last two years, we understand that damage can and does occur. The follow fee schedule for damage is provided for the 17-18 school year:

  • 1st Incident - $0 (unless malicious/purposeful intent or gross negligence is evident)
  • 2nd Incident - $30
  • 3rd Incident - Full cost of repair or replacement cost of device at fair market value

Parents/guardians accept financial responsibility for costs related to damage due to purposeful action or gross negligence.

    • Purposeful action means to act intentionally or with intent to perform a particular act, to act in a particular manner for a specific reason, aim, or design, or a resolution to use a certain means to reach an end.
    • Gross negligence is defined as lack of any care or an extreme departure from what a reasonably careful person would do in the same situation to prevent harm to the property.

Parents/guardians may be charged fair market value for a device that is lost/stolen and NOT reported.

Parents/guardians may be charged fair market value for lost/damaged power cords.
