    The Fine Print

    • All fees for 1:1 Assurance stay within the program and will fund continued repairs, replacements, and upgrades to student 1:1 devices.
    • Assurance fee will be automatically loaded to all secondary students' accounts and is non-refundable.
    • Assurance does not cover deliberate vandalism by the student.
    • If the device and/or accessory is later recovered in working condition, any related fines will be refunded.
    • If a student leaves the District, but does not return the Chromebook, a fine for the full replacement cost will be placed on the student record, and standard rules for the restriction of records and transcripts will apply. Law enforcement may be involved for the purpose of recovering District property.
