Parents invited to informational meeting for BHS 1:1 Technology Initiative

December 12, 2013 

At 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, parents of Belton High School students will have the opportunity to learn more about the 1:1 Technology Initiative and its expansion to the high school at a meeting taking place in the BHS upper gym. During this meeting, Superintendent Dr. Andy Underwood, BHS principal, Dr. Fred Skretta and technology staff will discuss proper uses and answer questions parents or students may have.

In January, students at BHS will receive laptops to be used in the classroom and at home for homework and assignments. All students will be required to pay a user fee of $40 before receiving their device. Students will have the option to work eight hours around the Belton School District to pay for that fee. Families receiving free and reduced lunch will have a lower user fee ($30 for reduced; $20 for free). These students also will have the option to pay for the fee with eight hours of work. The fee will cover use and insurance; however, there will be a $100 deductible for damaged devices and a $150 fee for lost or stolen devices.

For more information, call BHS at 816-348-1036.
