Students New to KM High School for 2022-23
As with the middle school program, the TPP at the high school level involves families and the Kettle Moraine School District sharing the cost of a computer for a student to use at school and home. At the end of your student’s high school career, your family will own the computer.
Based on past feedback, we offer 3 different choices at the high school level. As is the case with everything, costs have increased for computing devices over the past few years. We are able to keep the parent cost the same for the Chromebook models, but the Windows model will increase by 20.00/year for students starting with that device this fall. Due to supply chain issues, we have to place orders prior to receiving information back from parents this year. If requests for a device type exceed supply, we will honor requests in the order they are received.
The three devices (listed below) are the options for the 2022-23 school year. Detailed technical specifications are available on the district website.
$75.00/year : 11.6” Acer Touchscreen Chromebook (R753T)
$95.00/year : 14” Acer Touchscreen Chromebook (CB514)
$175.00/year : 13.3” HP Probook 435 G8 Windows laptop (4J217UT#ABA)
Payments will be due from families each year during the back-to-school registration process. The program covers insurance and maintenance on the device for four years. With the change to touchscreen devices, our insurance program will cover the first damaged/broken screen. Any subsequent screen replacements will require a $100.00 deductible payment from the family.
Families who qualify for fee waivers are not required to make the payment and may still participate in the program, however they will not own the device at the end of high school unless payments are made.
If you do not wish to participate in the high school TPP, your child has the option to use his/her Chromebook from middle school, or you may purchase a device to send with your child to school each day.
Distribution of devices will be during the first week of school. More information about the Technology Partnership Program, as well as the program handbook, is available at www.kmsd.edu/tpp.
