Starting in the 2016-17 school year technology fees will be collected to support technology in our schools (apps, software, repairs, iPads, etc). At the secondary level the fee is $30 per student, capped at $90 for families with multiple students in the same school. The fee for ES's is $10 per student, capped at $30 for families with multiple students in the same school. Upon request schools may establish a payment plan for families.
