    Posted by:

    Chromebooks will be assigned to all students in 7th and 8th grade.  Those families that choose to purchase the school insurance policy will be allowed to take them home.  Those that do not will need to leave them at school at the end of the day.

  • How much does the insurance plan cost?

    Posted by:

    We have not had, nor do we expect many chromebooks to be damaged.  We have purchased one of the most protective cases we can to ensure that the chromebook is safe, but in the event that damage does occur, CPS offers an insurance plan.  The insurance plan has a one-time cost of $50 to enroll.

  • What does the insurance plan cover?

    Posted by:

    The insurance plan covers any accidental damage to the chromebook with a $50/incident cost for up to 2 incidents/year.  For example, if a student accidentally breaks the screen, you will be asked to pay a $50 incident cost and the cost of the repair will be covered.  If the student breaks the screen a second time, you will be asked to pay a $50 incident cost again and the repair will be covered.  If there is damage a 3rd time, you will be responsible for the total cost of the repair.

  • Is there anything NOT covered by the insurance plan?

    Posted by:

    The chromebook case and charger are not covered by the insurance plan.  You will be responsible for the full cost of any damage to any of these accessories not due to normal wear and tear. Intentional damage to the chromebook is not covered.  Loss of the chromebook and/or theft of the chromebook is not covered.

  • What if I choose not to enroll in the insurance program?

    Posted by:
    If you choose not to enroll in the insurance program, your child will not be permitted to take the chromebook home.  He/she will be responsible for picking it up in the morning and returning it at the end of the day.  He/she will still be responsible for the homework assigned to the class.  He/she may need to work with the teacher to discuss accommodations to the assignment.
