MLISD UPDATES AND INFORMATION
Spring/Summer 2018 mLISD Deployment/ Device Collection
Payments for mLISD Laptops
The payment window opened April 1, 2018 for families to secure their students’ district-provided laptops for the 2018-19 school year. If current 6th-8th graders pay by MAY 28TH they will be able to keep their laptops over the summer for no additional charge. Current 5th graders may also pay in advance to prepare for the deployment of their laptops, which will occur at the beginning of the next school year.
Advantages to students keeping the laptop over the summer:
- Students can practice their typing and extend their learning through self-guided and assigned summer projects.
- Students can continue to access ebooks via Overdrive or Google Books.
- Students will have their laptop on the first day of school. Deployment at the beginning of the year may mean you have to wait until the 2nd or 3rd week of school to receive your laptop.
- Your mLISD fee of $70 is already taken care of, so there is one less expense in the August back-to-school budget.
Please note that Leander ISD is now providing Internet filtering when the mLISD device is not attached to the district’s network. Click HERE for more information/FAQ about the new filtering system.
Price: $70 for entire year or $35 for students receiving free or reduced lunch.

**FOR CURRENT 8TH GRADERS HEADED TO ANY LISD HIGH SCHOOL-
8th graders have the same process. If you pay prior to MAY 28TH they will take their laptop to any high school they attend in LISD. There is no action on your part once they become freshman. The laptop automatically transfers to that high school. If you choose not to pay prior to MAY 28TH the student will return their laptop & charger. If you pay once they arrive as a 9th grader they will be issued computer there and not have access to a computer during the summer. *Please note, when students are reissued a computer it doesn't mean they will receive a "new" computer. MLISD guarantees a working computer, but not necessarily a new one. The district is in the process of purchasing laptops to begin to replace a portion of our fleet. At this time, there is not a definitive plan on the how that new-computer deployment will look. There are many scenarios that are being discussed.
