Chromebook Purchase/Distribution

July 13, 2015- Update:

Below is additional information regarding payment and distribution of the Chromebook device that you have ordered from the Bedford School District. We appreciate your patience as we begin this first year of implementation.

All Chromebook devices have been ordered and are expected to arrive in the next few weeks. Upon arrival, we will inventory, assign and configure the devices and enroll them into our Chromebook Management System. That way, your student’s device will be ready to go for the start of school. Devices will be available for pickup the week of August 17th-20th from 8:00am-4:00pm at Bedford High School. If you are unable to pick up the device during that week, there will be alternate days posted at a later time. Payment must be made in full prior to the pickup of the Chromebook device. Families that selected the lease to own option need to make the first annual payment prior to the pickup.

The following options are available for payment:

Check
All checks should be made out to the Bedford School District. Please include your student’s name and ID number on the check.  For parents that selected the purchase option, the cost of the device is $168 and the cost of the optional accidental breakage/theft insurance is $21 for a total of $189.  For parents that selected the lease-to-own option, the payment due in year one is $77. This includes the cost of the insurance coverage. You can write one check for the cost of the device and insurance. One check for multiple student purchases is also acceptable.

Please mail the checks to:
McKelvie Intermediate School – Technology Hub
Attn: Sharon Goodwin
108 Liberty Hill Road
Bedford, NH 03110

Checks will also be accepted at the time of pickup of the Chromebook.

Credit Card
Parents can pay for the purchase or lease to own option via credit card.  The District uses the “Send Money To School” (http://www.sendmoneytoschool.com) service for this purpose. This is the same service that is used to deposit money into your student’s lunch account. Click here for the instructions on how to pay for the device via credit card. There is a $2.00 transaction fee to pay by credit card. Credit card payments are accepted for the purchase and lease-to-own options.

Cash
Cash will be accepted on the day of pickup of the Chromebook.
