mLISD and Student Device End-of-the-Year Information

Secondary Student Information (grades 6-12)

Payments for mLISD Laptops

The payment window is now open for families to secure their secondary students’ district-provided laptops for the upcoming 20-21 school year. Newly participating students in Grades 6-11 will be issued devices by appointment only through the end of May. Once a payment or scholarship is received, the parent will be contacted by the Campus Technologist to schedule an appointment. For students who pay after the end of May, devices will be issued at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year or when instruction returns to campuses.

Students with devices currently checked out will keep their devices and bring them to their campuses once on-campus instruction continues for the 2020-2021 school year.  Students moving to a new LISD campus will also take their device with them.

Students entering Grade 6 will be issued devices at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year or when instruction returns to campuses.  

LISD understands that families may not be able to pay the mLISD fee at this time.  As stated above, students who have not paid for the upcoming school year will still keep their devices over the summer until they return to campus. Families can choose to participate at any time between now and then to ensure that their student(s) will have a 1:1 device once on-campus instruction continues.

Price: $70 for entire year or $35 for students receiving free or reduced lunch.

Payment methods:

A) Debit/credit cards through the mLISD website 
B) For students in need of a scholarship, please send an email to mlisd@leanderisd.org

Include the following in the email:  
• Student Name
• Campus
• Student ID Number
• Parent Phone Number

Students Withdrawing
Registrars will notify the student/parent if they currently have a device checked out.  Campus Techs will contact the student to schedule a time to return the device. Students/parents who do not return a device will be fined for the replacement cost of the device and potentially receive a filed police report against them.

Outgoing seniors
Graduating seniors will be expected to return their devices to their home campus at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Each campus will have pick-up windows towards the end of the school year and provide multiple opportunities for families to return the devices.

Outgoing 8th Graders
Current 8th Graders will keep their devices over the summer and return them to their High School. Current 8th graders will receive new devices at their high schools at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year or when instruction returns to campuses. 

Elementary Chromebooks

Students/parents can continue to request devices on an individual basis by contacting the LISD Help Desk at (512) 570-0566 until the end of May. Once requested, a Campus Technologist will schedule an appointment with the parent for a device deployment.
Students with devices currently checked out will keep their devices and bring them to their campuses once on-campus instruction continues for the 20-21 school year.  Students moving to a new LISD campus will also take their device with them, including students entering Grade 6. Damages and missing item fines will be assessed at the time of device collection.
