Chromebook Protection Plan

The West Springfield School District offers families a Chromebook protection plan to insure the district-owned Chromebooks issued to students. The protection plan is self administered by the district. The protection plan program protects each student’s Chromebook against accidental damage, theft, etc...

Every student issued a chromebook to take home (grades 6-12) can purchase the protection plan by Sept 15th.

If you choose NOT TO PURCHASE coverage for your student’s device, you are liable for any and all damages done to the Chromebook while in your student’s possession. The full replacement cost of a Chromebook if it was damaged in any way is $300.00. Failure to sign a waiver does not in any way absolve you from this liability; by accepting a Chromebook on behalf of your student(s), you acknowledge and agree that you are liable for any damage that is caused. Student privileges, records and/or diplomas may be withheld until outstanding liabilities are paid in full.
