Computer purchase program

We know how important technology is in today’s work environment, especially in the field of education. That is the reason why we implemented a computer purchase program for our employees. The school board is proud to offer its employees the opportunity to purchase APPLE computers and equipment at a lower price. Moreover, they can pay in installments with a no-interest loan, up to a maximum of two school years.

This annual program is available to all the certified staff (continuous contract) and support staff (one year contract) who have been working for CSCE for over two years. Certified employees, with a probationary or non-permanent contract, and support staff who have a 10 months employment contract, can submit a request to Human Resources, but decisions will be taken on a case by case basis, in conjunction with the IT department.

Depending on the amount of your purchase, the monies will be deducted from your pay until completely reimbursed. The HR department, in conjunction with IT and Accounting, will do the necessary follow-ups to make these payroll deductions possible for you. The first installment will be applied on the first pay following you signing the acknowledgement of debt form.

It is possible. If you can prove that your computer will be used for educational purposes (in the classroom), you could be eligible to a $300 rebate on the purchase price.

If you make the decision to leave the employment of CSCE, upon reception of your resignation letter, we will ask you to pay the balance owing. Otherwise this amount will be automatically deducted from your last pay.
