1:1 Chromebook Initiative

The United School District is pleased to provide students with the opportunity to participate in the United School District 1:1 Chromebook Initiative.  All learners are given the privilege of utilizing a Chromebook that is the sole property of the United School District.

 

This district-issued device is to be utilized for the United School District 1:1 Chromebook Initiative.  The student and his/her parent(s)/guardian(s) agree and ensure that the Chromebook will be used solely for educational purposes and not for any other unauthorized use.  The student shall use the Chromebook in a lawful, prudent, and careful manner and shall not make any alterations to the Chromebook without the consent of school district personnel.  No music or games shall be downloaded or installed on the Chromebook.  The student and parents shall not permit the Chromebook to be used by anyone other than the student.  Unauthorized use of the Chromebook will constitute grounds for discipline as outlined in the Code of Conduct and Discipline in the Parent Student Handbook.

 

Students and parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for maintaining this equipment in the condition in which it is issued.  Parent(s)/guardian(s) and students will incur all expenses resulting from damaged or lost equipment or attempts to tamper with equipment.  It is strongly recommended that every student’s device be insured through the district’s optional insurance plan (see the United School District 1:1 Chromebook Insurance Plan for details). Below are the pricing guidelines for equipment repairs and replacements:

 

Equipment Cost of repair with no insurance Cost of repair with insurance
Power Cord $25.00 1 insurance claim
Keyboard Replacement $75.00 1 insurance claim
Screen Replacement $75.00 1 insurance claim
Full Chromebook Replacement $200.00 $100.00 + 1 insurance claim OR 2 insurance claims
 

If insurance coverage is not purchased and the Chromebook is damaged, the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be invoiced for the cost of repairs.  The United School District accepts payment in the form of check or money order. No cash will be accepted.

 

The United School District will adhere to the policies and guidelines in the Parent Student Handbook for any student who has not returned the Chromebook in good working order or who has not paid for repairs.  Additionally, the United School District reserves the right to contact a collection agency and/or file a complaint with the District Magistrate to recover lost equipment or expenses that result from any damages to its property.
