    Dell Computer Discount for CMSD Employees
    Dell Computers and the Department of Information Technology (DoIT) has established an employee discount program that will benefit CMSD employees, students, and parents who need to purchase personal computer devices and peripherals. Dell has set up a website for this purpose. Employees, students, and parents have access to a CMSD catalogue of recommended systems with district-exclusive pricing. They also have access to other discounts through the Member Purchase catalogue where they can take advantage of any current Dell promotions or specials, plus receive an additional discount. An employee, student, and parent discount will be in addition to any other available special pricing or offers.
    The purchases are not processed through a school or the district. The equipment can be shipped to any address. It is understood to be for personal use and not necessarily for district business.
