As part of the 1:1 Chromebook initiative at Braham School District #314, the District will provide students with a Chromebook or similar electronic device for school work to use both at school and at home. To help the District and parents protect this investment, parents must select one of three options for covering accidental damage or theft prior to the deployment of the Chromebook or similar electronic device to your child.
Personal Insurance. Parents may choose to procure their own insurance at their own cost to protect the District provided Chromebook or similar electronic device in cases of theft, loss or accidental damage. Parents should consult their insurance agent about the availability of a personal insurance policy or a rider to an existing renter’s or homeowner’s policy. The replacement cost of the policy must be at least $300. If you choose this option, proof of insurance must be provided to the District annually on or before June 1 and/or before your student(s) are provided with a Chromebook.
- $40 PER YEAR
District Insurance. Parents may purchase insurance through the District. District insurance will protect Chromebooks or a similar electronic device against theft or accidental damage due to an act of nature (i.e.: fire, flood, water, etc.). The District will require that a police report be submitted in cases of theft. Fraudulent reporting of theft will be turned over to the police for prosecution. A student making a false report will also be subject to disciplinary action as outlined by the school discipline code. This insurance policy does not cover loss of the Chromebook and/or its accessories, cosmetic damage, or damages caused by intentional misuse and abuse. The District will assess parents the cost for repair and/or replacement if the damage is determined not to be accidental, if the device is lost or if the damage or loss is otherwise not within the protection
- $300 REFUNDABLE DAMAGE DEPOSIT
Parents who choose not to provide their student(s) with a personal electronic device or to obtain either personal insurance or insurance through the District must agree to pay for the repair or replacement of the Chromebook or similar electronic device and provide the District with an annual $300 refundable deposit. The full deposit, less the cost for repair or replacement, if applicable, will be returned when the Chromebook is returned to the District in proper working order.
- NO INSURANCE
Chromebook will stay in school and will NOT be allowed to go home. Students will be responsible for any damages caused by intentional misuse and abuse.
