Chromebook Warranty Information:
All Chromebooks are covered by Acer's warranty against manufacturer's defects for one year. The Natick School District's Chromebook Accidental Damage/Loss Policy is in place to cover most issues that may arise with the Chromebook.
Chromebook Accidental Damage/Loss Policy:
Tiered approach for damage and repairs -
$0 - Minor wear and tear covered by annual Chromebook fee*
*The Chromebook fee will NOT cover:
- If the machine is dropped. (Acer voids the warranty.)
- If the Chromebook/charger was "stolen" because it was left unattended.
- If damage is due to not following the Acceptable Use Policy.
$50 - Moderate damage or part replacement, ie: broken keyboard
$100 - More expensive repair due to spill damage, cracked screen, dropped Chromebook
Full value of the device if lost or stolen. GPS tracking will be used when a police report is filed.
NOTE: DAMAGE TO A CHROMEBOOK MAY INCUR REPAIR COSTS OF MORE THAN ONE TIER.
Families are welcome to investigate options for obtaining their own private insurance through their homeowners’ insurance or an independent laptop insurance company. It is our understanding that you may contract with these agencies, based on their own policies and may do so even though the Natick Public Schools is registered as the owner of the chromebook.
