Students New to KM High School for 2020-21

  • The following are the options you have to participate in the Technology Partnership Program (TPP) as a high school student. 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.

    Note: Because ownership of the device is eventually transferred to you, the program requires four payments regardless of when your student enters the district.

    Based on feedback we have received from our middle school and high school students, they would like to see more options with touchscreens, larger screens, and faster performance. The three devices (listed below) are the options for the 2019-20 school year. 

     

    Detailed technical specifications are available on the district website. 

    • $75.00/year : 11.6” Acer Touchscreen Chromebook (R752T)
    • $95.00/year : 14” Acer Touchscreen Chromebook (C933T-P8SM)
    • $155.00/year : 13.3” HP Probook 430 G7 Windows laptop


    Payments will be due from families each year during the back-to-school registration process. 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.

     

    The program covers insurance and maintenance on the device for four years. With the 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.

     

    An additional benefit of the program is that for safety and security, TPP devices are monitored and filtered by district systems both at school and at home. 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. 

     

    If you do not wish to participate in the high school TPP, your child has the option to use his/her computer from middle school, or you may choose to purchase a new device to send with your child to school each day. Please keep in mind that bring-your-own devices are not filtered by district systems.
