Making Your Purchase

In order to purchase a MacBook, any outstanding fees owed to the District must be paid in full. You may choose from two payment options.

  • One-Time Payment: Visit, select your child’s school link, and follow the directions to make a one-time payment of $200 via debit card, credit card, or echeck by May 13, 2024 at 3:30 p.m. If you do not find your child’s name on the site, contact CCSD93’s Business Office at 630-893-9393.

  • Four-Month Payment Plan: Complete the form at by February 20, 2024, to sign up for a payment plan consisting of four (4) equal monthly installments of $50, due by February 20, March 20, April 19, and May 13. 

    • Payments should be made by debit card, credit card, cash, or personal check at your child’s middle school during school office hours. Debit and credit card payments may be submitted over the phone. 

    • If you are unable to make payments during school hours, you may instead pay by cash or personal check at CCSD93’s drop box at CCSD93’s District Office (230 Covington Drive in Bloomingdale). In this case, payment should be placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s full name and school ID number clearly marked on the outside and submitted by each month’s deadline to the drop box. The drop box is located next to the main entrance door. 

    • Final payment plan installments cannot be made via check.

Computer Reset Drop Off & Pickup

Eighth grade students will return their computers to CCSD93 near the very end of the school year. Families of 8th graders purchasing the computer will then be invited to pick up the purchased MacBook after the conclusion of the school year at their child’s middle school on a date to be determined later. Watch for more information on pickup nearer to the end of the school year. 

For additional information, please contact CCSD93’s Business Office at or 630-893-9393.
