In order for your child to participate in the 1:1 program in the upcoming school year, you will need to register them using the online form (please read the options below before filling out the form):
|What are my options?|
|There are five options that have been made available for families to purchase a Chromebook. These are all reflected in the Online form on this page. Below is an explanation of the option and what it may mean for you in obtaining a Chromebook. The MPS and Melrose IT Department maintain strict confidentiality regarding any personal information.|
I will or have purchased a Chromebook(s) through the Dell Website
My child qualifies for free or reduced lunch and therefore qualifies for a free or reduced-cost Chromebook. I authorize the Melrose Public Schools Business Manager to access your child’s Lunch status through the National School Lunches Program available from MPS Food Services.
My family does not qualify for free or reduced lunch however, my family’s household size and adjusted gross income may qualify my child for a 25% reduction in cost for a Chromebook according to the chart below (which includes the Google Apps for Ed domain license) (If you need to apply for FRL, please call (781) 462-3219).
I have a hardship and would like to apply for a waiver or reduced cost Chromebook and do not meet any of the above mentioned qualifications.
I will purchase a different brand of Chromebook, or from another vendor; or my child(ren) already has/have a Chromebook that meets or exceeds the specifications laid out in the Chromebook Specifications document.
