Technology Services offers internet reimbursement to student's families who are not taking advantage of the Verizon Wireless MiFi devices offered by the school. To take advantage of this program, please complete the Internet Reimbursement Request Form, print it out and return it along with your monthly statements to:
Technology Services - Internet Reimbursement
240 Market Street, Box 1a
Bloomsburg, PA 17815
Forms and statements can also be faxed to 570.245.0246
Internet Reimbursement will be processed based off of this schedule:
|Statements received between||Must be sent by||To be processed by|
|September 1 - November 30||December 15||December 30|
|December 1 - February 28||March 15||March 30|
|March 1 - May 31||June 15||June 30|
If you participate in Internet Reimbursement, you will not be offered a MiFi device. If you submit an Internet Reimbursement Request Form along with your statements and your student has been issued a MiFi device, your request for Internet Reimbursement will be denied.
Internet Reimbursement is offered only for the actual cost of the internet service. Taxes, fees, equipment rentals and setup costs are not reimburseable and forms including these costs will be adjusted to only reimburse the internet service cost.
We recommend at least a 3mbps download rate and .5mbps upload rate. Mention this to your service provider and they will direct you to the proper internet service.
Each tier of internet service has a maximum reimbursement cost associated with it due to their individual average service cost. This is the reimbursement amount schedule for the 2015-2016 school year:
DSL - $40.00
Cable - $50.00
Satellite - $60.00
Cellular (Verizon)* - $40.00
Cellular (ATT, Sprint, etc) - $50.00
*Due to the fact that we have a contract with Verizon Wireless, we will only reimburse cellular internet service at the amount that we currently pay.
Best Internet Service
If it is decided that the service that Verizon Wireless offers in your local area is superior to the internet service that you receive, we may require that the student utilize the Verizon Wireless MiFi device so that the student is presented with a faster connection. Faster connections offer a better learning environment as they tend to alleviate the frustrations of longer load times. In this instance, Internet Reimbursement will not be offered since a MiFi device is being supplied.
