Technology Discounts for Families
Many families are contacting us asking how they can purchase their own technology at a discount rather than borrowing from the district. GISD has partnered with these vendors who have created special pricing and options to support our students during closures to support learning at home. Please consider purchasing while the pricing remains low.*Important Notes: Technology you buy from our partner vendors does not come configured with GISD software. Although students can accomplish most learning tasks with simply Google Chrome browser and internet connection, some high school classes require specific software. GISD cannot make this software available but will provide district laptops for these students to borrow. GISD does not provide technical support for personal devices you purchase.
