Chromebooks will be distributed each fall during “Student and Parent Chromebook Orientation.” Parents and students must fill out and Submit the Chromebook Computer Protection plan and Student Pledge form through FamilyID before the laptop can be issued to their child. The Chromebook Computer Protection plan outlines three options for families to protect the Chromebook investment for the school district. Please review the below Chromebook Computer Protection plan. Chromebooks will be collected at the end of each school year for maintenance, cleaning and software installations. Students will retain their original laptop each year while enrolled at CVSCSD.
LAPTOP COMPUTER PROTECTION
The Cherry Valley-Springfield Central School District recognizes that with the implementation of the laptop initiative there is a need to protect the investment by both the District and the Student/Parent. The following outlines the various areas of protection: warranty, accidental damage protection and insurance.
WARRANTY: This coverage is purchased by the Cherry Valley-Springfield School District as part of the purchase price of the equipment. The manufacturer warrants the laptops from defects in materials and workmanship. This limited warranty covers normal use, mechanical breakdown or faulty construction and will provide replacement parts necessary to repair the laptop or laptop replacement. The warranty does not warrant against damage caused by misuse, abuse, accidents or computer viruses.
ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE PROTECTION: Cherry Valley-Springfield Central School provides coverage to protect the laptops against accidental damage such as: liquid spills, accidental drops, power surges, and natural disasters. This coverage does not provide for damage caused by fire, theft, loss, misuse, intentional or frequent damage or cosmetic damage . CVSCSD will assess the laptop damage and repair or replace the machine at no cost if the damage is determined to be accidental, infrequent, and within the protection guidelines. Warranty, Accidental Damage Protection, or the District Laptop Protection does not cover intentional or neglectful damage of the laptop computer.
INSURANCE FOR THEFT, LOSS OR FIRE:
Laptops that are stolen, lost or damaged by fire are not covered by the
manufacturer’s warranty or the Accidental Damage Protection outlined above. Following is the description of available options for these types of losses, and the Student/Parent must commit to one of the four selections below in the "Add-Ons" portion of this form.
No Insurance: You agree to pay for the replacement of the laptop at a cost not to exceed $500 should the laptop be stolen, lost or damaged by fire.
Personal Insurance: You will cover the laptop under your own insurance policy and in the case of a theft, loss or damage by fire, you agree to pay the District the amount received from your insurance company plus any additional amount needed to cover the laptop replacement not to exceed $500.
School District Protection: You choose to pay the school district an annual protection payment for coverage of theft, loss or damage by fire in the amount of $25.00 or $50.00 for family coverage when there are two or more children in school using laptop computers. The $25.00 payment is non-refundable. This protection coverage has a $100.00 additional charge per occurrence. This annual coverage begins upon receipt of the payment and ends at the conclusion of each school year. ( Families eligible for free/reduced lunches will have the $25.00 / $50.00 fee waived )
Additional Information: In cases of theft, vandalism and other criminal acts, a police report, or in the case of fire, a fire report MUST be filed by the student or parent for the protection coverage to take place. A copy of the police/fire report must be provided to the principal’s office. The $100.00 additional charge is the responsibility of the student/parent and must be paid before the laptop can be repaired or replaced.
INTENTIONAL DAMAGE: Students/Parents are responsible for full payment of intentional damages to laptops. Warranty, Accidental Damage Protection, or School District Laptop Protection DOES NOT cover intentional damage of the laptops.
