Students who have not paid the fee are not eligible to be covered by the program benefits listed below.|

Q: Can I check out a Chromebook and refuse the Chromebook Damage/Loss Protection Plan?
|A: A student may check out a Chromebook and refuse to participate in the Damage/Loss Protection Program; in this case, the student will need to submit a Refusal of Chromebook Damage/Loss Protection Program form and by doing so will assume the full costs of repair or replacement should a damage or loss incident occur.|
Q: How would the plan work if the device is accidentally dropped and the damage is such that it needed to be replaced?

|A: Subsequent damage to the Chromebook after the first documented claim will result in the following charges:|
- Second incident of damage: Student will be charged $50
- Third incident of damage: Student will be charged $100
Q: If I've paid into this plan, what happens if the device is lost or stolen?

- Second loss of Chromebook: $150 fine
- Third loss and beyond of Chromebook: $300 full replacement cost
If the Chromebook is stolen, the Beaverton School District will require a police report to be filed. Fraudulent reporting of the theft will be turned over to the local law enforcement agency for investigation. Students making a false report may also be subject to disciplinary action.
Q: If I've paid into this plan, what if the power cord is lost?
