Our Chromebook one-to-one initiative continues to transform Oakfield-Alabama classrooms! Our students are increasingly able to access information, create content and work together. The 2018-19 school year will be the fourth consecutive year of the Chromebook rollout for students in grades 1 through 12.
As in previous years, families are responsible for district-owned property that is issued to students, similar to other district equipment such as textbooks, calculators, cameras, athletic equipment or library books. As such, the Oakfield-Alabama Board of Education had approved a flat-rate repair fee structure in the event of damages due to student negligence, in order to protect this investment in your child’s education:
- 1st incident: $35
- 2nd incident $75
- 3rd incident $315 (complete replacement)
We are pleased to inform you that the District is partnering once again with Safeware insurance to offer optional insurance coverage for 12 months. Families who purchase this optional insurance will not be charged repair fees, since all repairs are covered in full by SafeWare (zero deductible).
Buying Chromebook insurance is optional, but highly recommended. Parents who wish to take advantage of this opportunity will sign up online directly with SafeWare during the month of September. The only payment forms accepted are credit/debit cards and the annual cost is $18.75 per Chromebook.
Once you have completed your Chromebook registration here on FamilyID, please use this handout as your guide to complete payment online.
NOTE: You will be asked for the serial number on your Chromebook. On Dell models, the 7 digit alphanumeric serial code appears just after the "service tag". On Acer models, the 22 alphanumeric serial code appears just below the bar code. See the photo example of where to locate the serial number in this guide.
Purchases must be made online between Sept 1st thru 30th each year.
