With a $200 (out of pocket) deposit families can
receive a new desktop or laptop computer. Beginning with the current school
year, and continuing with the following two school years, a withdrawal of
$375.00 will be taken from the student allotment to pay for the computer.
The Nenana office must receive the deposit (money
order or check only) with a signed Computer Assignment Agreement form before the
computers will be ordered or delivered.
To participate in the CyberLynx Computer Leasing
Program, a family first purchases a new computer during the school year. A
signed Computer Lease form and original receipt for the computer purchase must
be sent to the Nenana CyberLynx Office.
CyberLynx then leases the computer from the family
for $38 per month. Payment are made to the family on a quarterly basis. Please refer to page 14 of the
CyberLynx Handbook for more information.

procurement programs, at least one child in the family
