Discussion

 With the technology plan, BPS is moving towards 1:1 computers where students will be permitted to take them home.  To help offset the costs of replacement, maintenance, and repairs; the implementation team from Leading and Learning and Educational Technology has recommended a district-wide plan for technology fees commensurate with district-wide fees for other activities and programs.  The recommended fee structure would offer a 50% reduction to a student on free and reduced lunch, and it would provide an adjusted maximum fee for families with multiple children.  Parents are welcome to pay the fees incrementally.  This recommendation aligns with Board Policy 6152.

Recommendation

Approve the attached 1:1 Technology Fee for implementation beginning FY22.
