    During the school year
    During the school year Chromebooks assigned to a student that incur minor chips, cracks, and small
    dents to the case and continues to be fully functional are not sent in for repair. Damage more severe
    such as, missing keys, damaged screen, large cracks in the cover or bezel, or loss of functionality, must be
    repaired immediately and the cost of parts charged to the parents. Large cracks in the case are defined
    as anything big enough to allow damage to the circuit board or screen.
    At the end of the school year
     
    ● For grades 5 and 8, the student’s Chromebook will be assessed for damage and refurbished, if
    necessary. The charge to refurbish will be incurred by the parent.
    The refurbished Chromebook will be rented to another student the next school year at the school.
    Note: This ensures that the next recipient receives it in good condition and eliminates the possibility
    of paying for damage by an earlier user.

    repaired at the end of the school year.
     
    Withdrawals during the school year
    Upon student withdrawal from a school the student’s device will be assessed for damage and
    refurbished, if necessary. The charge to refurbish will be incurred by the parent. This includes a student
    who moves to another Crown Point school or withdraws from the corporation.
