1:1 Chromebook Initiative to Begin!
Montevideo Public Schools is excited to announce that we will be implementing a 1:1 Chromebook Initiative for grades 8-12 beginning in the fall for the 2016-2017 school year!  Chromebooks will be issued to students at no charge.  However, parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to participate in the district's insurance plan offered for Chromebook coverage.  The insurance is $30 per device per year (and only $15 if qualified for free/reduced lunch).  The insurance covers accidental damage, burglary, and theft.  Families who elect to purchase Chromebook insurance must do so before being issued a Chromebook.  Insurance may be purchased by visiting the School Store and clicking on Student Fees and Charges.  Insurance may also be purchased by visting the District Office. 

The entire board approved Chromebook Policy can be viewed by clicking HERE.

K-12 Education Subtraction and Credit

RSS
T

Minnesota has two tax relief programs for families with children in kindergarten through 12th grade: the K-12 Education Subtraction, and the K-12 Education Credit. Both programs help lower taxes and may provide a larger refund. when you file your Minnesota Form M1, Individual Income Tax. Because the rules for the education credit and subtraction are so similar, this section will cover both tax areas.

To qualify for either program, both of the following must be true:

For the K-12 credit:

For the K-12 subtraction:

  • Your qualifying child must attend a school located in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota or Wisconsin.
  • You can claim tuition paid for private schools and/or college courses used to satisfy high school graduation requirements
  • The subtraction is limited to $1,625 for each qualifying child in grades K-6 and $2,500 for each qualifying child in grades 7-12. For children in 6th and 7th grades, use the limit for the child’s grade level at the end of the tax year; for children who started college during the tax year, use the 12th grade limit.
  • To claim the K-12 subtraction, complete Schedule M1M, Income Additions and Subtractions with your Form M1.

For more information, see:
