Chromebook Optional Protection Program Terms and Conditions

As with any school issued equipment (textbooks, sports uniforms, library books) students are expected to take good care of the Chromebooks and take reasonable precautions against loss, theft, or damage. Should the device be lost, stolen or damaged he or she is responsible for the cost of repair or replacement. The full cost of replacement is $260.00.

Optional protection is available for a premium of $40.00. That premium entitles you to one free repair. All subsequent repairs, lost chargers and lost Chromebooks will incur additional fees (see form for further details and exceptions). The total combined benefit for the 2017-2018 school year may not exceed the replacement cost of one device or $260. (For example, if a device is lost, coverage is not transferable to the replacement device.) Purchased coverage will be in place through the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
