Student Technology Information

Technology Updates

Seniors must pay for any damaged or missing technology items before May 17th! Please see this flyer for more details!

HOTSPOTS

Hotspots can be checked out to students who need them on a first come, first served basis. They must be returned when the student leaves our campus or when the data runs out. Missing hotspots will result in a $150.00 charge.

To check one out, students can complete an Internet Device Request form through their Clever accounts. The form must be completed with a parent's permission and requires a parent signature.

The form can also be accessed by clicking here.

The hotspot will be delivered within 48 hours to the campus, and the device can be picked up in the library by the student. An email will be sent to the student when the hotspot is ready to be picked up, but the student can also check in with the library after 48 hours has passed.

LOST CHROMEBOOK CHARGERS

A missing charger will result in a $25.00 charge.

Students can purchase a replacement on Amazon for the best price. See this link for an example of the correct charger. 

Chargers can also be purchased through the online Revtrak system. Once a receipt is shown to the librarian, she will give a new charger to the student. That charger will need to be turned in with the device when the student leaves the district. A charger can also be purchased in the library with cash.

If they still need assistance, please call the student helpdesk at 254-284-1072 and they will reset student password to the default. 

CHROMEBOOKS

All students have been issued a school Chromebook. If your student does not have Chromebook issued to them, they can visit the UHS library. If the device is not powering on or has other issues, please come to the library to trade for a new one. If the student's device has damage, they will be responsible for charges. This may include paying a fee or completing other district-approved options.

PAYING FOR TECH DAMAGES OR FEES

Students are responsible for caring for their technology. They are responsible for accidental damages and may accrue charges if tech is lost or damaged. Please see this website to pay for accrued fees or damages. Please forward email receipt to show proof of payment to Mrs. Cunningham, the librarian.

If you prefer to pay with check, money order, or cash, you may pay on campus to the school librarian.

Please contact the school librarian at kelly.cunningham@wacoisd.org if you have any questions or need to make alternate arrangements. You can also call Mrs. Cunningham at 254-751-3447.

DO NOT GET BEHIND BECAUSE YOU ARE UNABLE TO PAY! 

STUDENT AND PARENT PORTAL

Parents and students, please check Parent/Student Portal weekly to see updates on grades and attendance.

If you need assistance with logging in to Parent Portal or Student Portal, please email the registrars below for your password to be reset. 

esmeralda.arrambide@wacoisd.org

maria.rodriguez@wacoisd.org

If a student does not attend a class period, they are counted absent. It is important that your student is attending and passing their classes so that they may receive credit for that course. The more support a student has to do these things, the better!
