Device Fees & Online Payment
As is practice in previous years, the Chromebook/Device usage fee for students will be $25. This fee will serve as insurance. This year, Coventry Public Schools is working to implement a new online payment system that integrates directly with our PowerSchool Parent Portal. Through this new system, families will be able to pay the $25 fee online using either a debit or credit card. Please know if you choose to use this option, a small service charge fee will be added at the time of purchase. You may also pay by check (made payable to CHS Activity Fund) or cash by either mailing your payment (with student name and grade) directly to your child’s school or by leaving it in the drop box at your child’s school. If the usage fee is not paid, any repairs required will be at full cost to the families. Students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch can have this fee waived. If you are unsure of your status or would like to discuss this further, please contact Beth Pratt, our Director of Food Services. You may also complete the attached Addendum form. In addition, if your family is experiencing a financial hardship, please contact your child’s school.
As a reminder, we ask that all students complete the annual update forms, which include the Device/Chromebook Usage forms prior to the start of school. These forms can be found in the PowerSchool Parent Portal as well. To help provide support to all parents/guardians in this process, or with the Annual Update, members of the IT department will be available through our help desk by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All directions, including videos, have been posted on our website on the Annual Student Update page. In addition, should you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
