We are going to offer Chromebook insurance through Worth Avenue Group and information is available below. Insurance will cover any accidental damages to the Chromebook but not lost or stolen power cords.
4. We encourage students NOT to bring your power cords to school. There is no need to if the device is charged nightly. Average battery life on a Chromebook should exceed the school day based on usage so charge your devices at home.
5. Do NOT deface or decorate your Chromebooks in any way. The district has provided labels to identify each Chromebook and student with their NAME, STUDENT ID, and WASD GOOGLE LOGIN name. Most of our Chromebook fleet is also UV printed with a label on the bottom of the device with the CHROMEBOOK NAME (Ex. WASD25-1234) and SERIAL# (Ex. 5CD025F89G).

Frequently Asked Questions…
