  1. the student is leaving the district, 
  2. the Chromebook needs repair, 
  3. the student has no charger, 
  4. the administration wants it left at Chase. 

Students will need to show their Chromebook and charger to Mrs. Taylor at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. If they do not have the charger, they will be assessed $20 for a new charger.  Next fall, students will show their Chromebook and charger to the media specialist at the high school to check in.

Students should make sure their Chromebook is working.  No stickers, except the name label on the bottom, are allowed.  


During the summer, the parents can take the Chromebook to the Tech Center for repair.  The type of repair determines if it is covered by warranty or not.
