Bring Your Own Laptop/Chromebook Cost Comparison
Thinking about purchasing a laptop instead of using the school device?
The school's program is more affordable than you might think...
Check out our comparison sheet below, then if you still want to purchase a personal device, download and complete the Bring Your Own Device Permission Form at the bottom of the page.
Prices on sheet reflect 3/1/20 prices.
Keep in mind these key points while looking at the chart below:
We use Securly web filtering and safety on our school devices. Personal devices will not have this.
We use NetRef in the classroom to keep students on task when they should be. Personal devices will not have this.
By opting out of the school program, you are choosing to opt-out of those two key pieces of software that keep your child safer online (even at your home) and on-task in the classroom. You are also choosing to spend more money on a device and repairs of that device.
