Technology Orientation Information:
If you are purchasing a Chromebook for your student, rather than using a Chromebook provided on loan by SHS, here is some helpful information.
- SHS will be distributing the Lenovo 100e Chromebooks for the 2018-19 school year to students who do not purchase one on their own.
Chromebook insurance can be purchased to help protect you in the event your Chromebook is damaged, lost, or stolen. Sandwich Public schools does not offer insurance as part of our Chromebook lending program, but this service can be purchased through various third party companies.
Sandwich Public Schools Student Technology Agreement:
All students and staff are required to review and sign the Sandwich Public Schools Student Handbook which includes the Acceptable Use Agreement and the Chromebook Agreement. Signing the Handbook and agreeing to the included policies is required to use school issued devices.
Accidents happen, but if it is determined that a Chromebook was damaged due to negligence it is the student's responsibility to repair or replace the device.
From the Handbook/ Chromebook Agreement...
Cost of Repairs:
Students will be held responsible for all damage to their mobile device including, but not limited to: broken screens, cracked plastic pieces, inoperability, etc. Should the cost to repair exceed the cost of purchasing a new device, the student will pay full replacement value. Lost items such as cables will be charged the actual replacement cost.
Families agree to pay all associated costs relating to device replacement not to exceed $250.00 (per device) should the device be stolen, lost, or damaged in any way. A signature from parents/guardians of agreement to this plan is to be submitted to Sandwich Public Schools before a student is allowed to receive a device. In the event of damage, loss, or theft, parents/guardians will be responsible to pay for the replacement cost.
Machines can be sent to the manufacturer for repair or sent to a local or online repair facility. On a continued trial basis for the 2018-19 school year, we will also offer in-house repair for Chromebooks. Pricing for in-house repair is listed below for supported Chromebook models.
