Student Devices

Northwest ISD understands the value of technology in the classroom as a means to elevate teaching and learning. Access to a world of information, resources, and creative potential helps our students be future ready. It is an expectation that all students come to school with a charged device every day. Students can choose to utilize a district issued device or their own personal computing device. Please review the Guidelines for Responsible Use of Technology for all NISD students.

Permission and Fees for Secondary Students

Northwest ISD students in 6th through 12th grades have the opportunity to receive a district issued device. Students will keep the same device throughout the student's enrollment in Northwest ISD or until issued a replacement device. For a device to be issued to a student, the district's Responsible Use Policy and Device Usage Agreement must be agreed to during the online enrollment process. The student is responsible for any fees associated with a lost or damaged device. 

In order to offset this cost, students have the option to purchase an annual maintenance plan each year for $25. Students on the free and reduced lunch program will have the maintenance plan fee waived at checkout. If you feel you should receive this discount, but the price is not automatically adjusted please contact your campus administrator.

This plan must be purchased within 30 days the first day of school. For students that enroll during the school year the plan must be purchased within 30 days of the student's enrollment. The plan covers the device from the first day of the current school year until the first day of the next school year and starts immediately upon purchase. The optional yearly maintenance plan pays one-half the cost of a covered repair.  For more information about what the optional plan covers, see more details below. 

To purchase this plan parents/guardians will log into NISD's online payment portal.

Optional Maintenance Plan

If purchased, the annual maintenance plan covers 50% of accidental damage, theft, loss, fire, water damage or vandalism. Damage estimates will be paid based on the table below and are subject to change:

Keyboard $20 $40
Power Adapter and Cord $30 $60
Hinges $40 $80
