Chromebook Repair Fees - New for 2014-15!
In an attempt to protect the very valuable investment that the Board of Education has made in its Chromebook 1-1 Program, it has adopted the following fee structure for repairs made to Chromebooks, beginning with the 2014-15 school year. After a year’s experience in working with the Samsung Chromebook and the damages we have seen with many of these school-owned devices, the administration has determined that some students are not taking proper care of their assigned Chromebook. The administration has observed some students not opening and closing the display properly; improperly storing and carrying the Chromebook when not in use; and other forms of preventable neglect or abuse.
The Board has taken a two-prong approach to this problem. 1) The District will purchase and install plastic protective covers this summer on all of the Chromebook machines before distributing to students. These covers should help in protection of the case and display. 2) The District will charge students and parents a set of fees for repairs to the Chromebook, when it is determined that the damage was not due to normal wear & tear or the fault of the manufacturer, but by the student not following proper procedures. The Board regrets having to use this fee structure, but did not want to increase the $30 damage waiver already charged to all students who wish to take their assigned Chromebook off campus. That damage waiver will stay at last year’s cost of $30.
