6. What if a family is experiencing a financial hardship?
RTSD wants every student to have access to the full range of academic resources provided by district teachers. Families unable to cover the cost of the Microsoft SurfaceGo device and accessories or cannot pay the $139 annual technology fee (which includes limited insurance coverage) due to economic hardship must indicate so below by entering their full name, grade level and today's date. Families will be contacted to confirm whether the fee has been waived. If a waiver is denied, families must select an alternative option through a form that will arrive in the mail.
