Because we value the use of technology in education, Metro makes available to our students a one-to-one laptop program. For a yearly fee of $50, students in grades 6-8 have the option to rent Chromebooks. High School students can rent MacBooks for $150 annually. The fees include all preventive maintenance, annual updates, and software licensing.
Scholarships covering part of the maintenance fee are available for students who have qualified for free or reduced lunch. To be eligible, students must submit a completed Free/Reduced Lunch application form (available on the Metro website or through the Ohio Department of Education). All applicants will receive a determination letter from Metro.
