FCPS additional fees for laptops; use money earmarked for illegal alien defense fund

I really didn't think that the schools could charge fees to the students (parents)? How about using the taxpayer money the supervisors have earmarked to provide legal defense to illegal aliens?

"As part of FCPSOn, an annual technology support fee of $50 will be charged to high school students. This fee will help ensure students have access to the technology they need by defraying the cost to repair and replace equipment, ensuring all students have the necessary laptops for testing, and providing back-up laptops as a substitute as needed. All students will need access to the same software, which might not be compatible with self-provided laptops. The technology support fee is included in the FY 2020 Advertised Budget."

Why should families have to pay to use FCPS computers if families already have computers??

By graduation, each student will have invested $200 to use a FCPS computer, but won’t own it. If students purchased a computer freshman year it could last beyond high school into college.

What happens if families refuse these fees? Who do I call to get my questions answered?

Families should refuse to pay this fee. We already pay taxes. where’s the outrage?

Plainly, you're too dumb to be worrying about going to college.

It's right next to your head -- which is up your ass. Keep looking for it.

It will be interesting to see how the county tries to get around Article VIII of the Virginia Constitution on this.

Article VIII A guarantees children the right to a free primary and secondary education. Article VIII implies that localities can charge non indigent families for text books, and certain course specific materials fees have been upheld. However a computer fee that was not tied to some specific computer class is pushing well beyond this.

In the past Virginia's Attorney General ruled that if localities required students to take AP tests as part of an AP class, the fees for those tests could not under Article VIII be passed on to the student's family. The argument for a computer fee on all high school students is on flimsier ground than the AP fees. The fee isn't being imposed on students based on their taking a specific class like the AP fee was. It is being charged according to this based on a child being a high school student. Might as well call it tuition.

FCPS could instead charge a $50 rental fee for use of school issued computers, provided the use of school issued computers was voluntary. So choose. Which is more important? Having all students having access to computers with the same capabilities? Or getting a $50 fee from high school students using the computers?

Just wait until you find out the kids on the free and reduced fee list don’t have to pay the 50 bucks. Brand new ‘puter, no charge.

Fairfax County got 1,100+ “unaccompanied minors” who arrived on the US southern border. They ended up in Fairfax County after dealmaking by county officials, some churches and nonprofits. Was not a publicized deal that tax-paying citizens got to vote on or voice opinions on prior to it being a done deal.

More futures voters for Bulova and Connolly! Enough kids to fill an entire school. It is entirely possible that that some of the now-homeless youth were part of that 2014 influx of parasites.

Article VIII of what? Nobody in Fairfax gives a fuck about that.

You pay for EVERYTHING. You pay to park, you pay to play sports, you pay to attend sports, you pay for laptops.

What are you people bitching about? The wonderfully tolerant libtards you elected are now taxing the fuck out of you. You need to shut up and pay.

The illegals don't pay for anything...no taxes and everything else is free under the indigent programs. So you need to PAY MORE to make up for what we're not getting from them and what we're diverting from the school budgets to keep them here and voting for Sharon.

with Fx Co Gov writing SIX BILLION OF DEBT PER YEAR and not even paying interest on the debt?

how the fuck would you know, out of 6 billion, where a laptop was funded? and if fx co gov ever paid or if Colorado ended up getting shorted on their gold sales?

FX CO GOV HAS THOUSANDS OF BANK ACCOUNTS AND IS DEEP IN FRAUD

THERE ISN'T A CHANCE OP KNOWS WHERE IN THE NON-BUDGET they came from or even if they aren't stolen from somewhere else in the 6 billion

-------------------------------

they are 6 billion SHORT, IN DEBT, of income a year

the only answer is to arrest them

I don't know a single parent with kids in FCPS who thinks this new computer policy is a good idea. Everyone is baffled.

It was an arbitrary and outrageously expensive maneuver from a school system that was pleading poverty for the last 12 years running.

All illegal leeches should be charged a rental fee for being here illegally and the revenues used to pay for their way back home after paying for the services they use.

What about all the taxes that they pay? After all, except in right-wing la-la-land, they pay all the same taxes that you do.

No they don't. That's a myth propagated by the left that is regurgitated by the less intelligent. The only question that remains is are you the one spreading the myth or the moron regurgitating it?

Last week FCPS sent out an email informing parents in about 20 elementary schools that ALL kids in those schools would receive free breakfast and lunch - no application or paperwork needed. FYI - there are a lot of school where the entire school is getting free meals - and that's in addition to the other schools where the students apply for free breakfast and lunch.

Regarding the computers -- If FCPS fully control the computers, how long before FCPS starts pushing their personal agenda and propaganda on the computers. It's one more way of the school having control over your kids.

You truly are a non-fucking moron. I have heard of babies that were dropped on their heads at birth, but it seems the doctor used your head for a basketball.

The Chief Judge of the Fairfax County General District Court attended undergrad in California. She went to law school in Virginia. Even if her undergraduate education was of some importance, she is not. The Chief Judge of the Fairfax County General District Court has no authority to determine school policy in Fairfax County. The General District Court is at the bottom of the jurisdictional pyramid. Even if a judge of that court could hear the case, any result would be appeallable by right to the Circuit Court for a trial de novo. A ruling by the Circuit Court could be appealled to the Virginia Supreme Court. That is two layers of courts on top of the General District Court. Neither the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court nor the Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court are Californians.

All of which means you don't have any fucking idea what you are talking about. Even as a troll YOU FAIL.
