  • PowerUp Fees

    • PowerUp is a districtwide initiative aimed at preparing students for the world beyond the four walls of the classroom. Part of this effort includes the district’s one-to-one laptop program, which eventually will provide every high school student with a laptop to use for learning at school and at home. For this privilege, each student is required to pay an annual, non-refundable $25 security deposit fee. Under HISD Board of Education policy, questions regarding fee eligibility should be directed to the school principal. For additional information, please see PowerUp.
    You can now purchase the $25 laptop insurance online with SchoolPay! You must bring your receipt to pick up your laptop. You can also print your laptop loan agreements for faster service. Fill them out and bring with you!
