7th & 8th Grade Chromebook information 2015

Rising 7th & 8th Graders Chromebook Process for 2015-2016

We are asking families to pay $31 for the usage fee (which still includes the Securly home filtering program). We have decided to contract with Worth Ave Insurance Company to handle repairs as they can both extend the warranty for one more year and provide comprehensive accidental coverage, including liquid damage (see attached).  This also includes damage to the power adapter. The fee does not cover theft (which did not happen this year) or lost device (only one device this year) and power charger (unknown).  It’s a great deal!

We are strongly suggesting that all families signup for this program.  The Chromebook program has been very successful this year as all students had the access they needed both in and out of the classroom. Not surprisingly, this year’s experience has shown that many unintentional accidents, drops and spills happened.  The insurance option will provide peace of mind at a relatively low cost.  If you elect not to participate then families will be responsible for any damage done to the device, which will be out of warranty.  The school will need a liability waiver signed so we know you understand this aspect of the program.
Payment should be made by August 1st You will need to know your student’s ID number, which is their lunch code and printed on their report card (and in iPass). This is the preferred payment method.
Or, physical checks can be made out to Wayland Public Schools and mailed to:
Leisha Simon
Wayland Public Schools
41 Chochituate Road
Wayland, MA 01778
Please include STUDENT NAME, ID and GRADE on the check.
If you need financial assistance: 
The Chromebooks will be re-deployed to students at school via homeroom in September.  They will receive the same device. We will require each family to sign the agreement page and AUP at that time.

The PTO will be offering a new online option for purchasing school supplies as a fundraiser. A different type of Chromebook case for the Acer C720 will be available from this site and students can opt to get one if they prefer that style.   You may also  purchase the case directly from Amazon.
