Chromebook Terms of Use

Region 12 Schools provides every child in grades 6-12 a 1:1 Chromebook device. Please read these Terms of Use carefully before signing the appropriate form in PowerSchool.

  1. The Chromebook is property of Region 12 Schools and, as such, is a privilege that can be revoked at any time.

  2. The Chromebook is an electronic tool for learning first and foremost.

  3. Student Chromebook serial numbers and asset tag information will be recorded by the school and assigned to the student. The Chromebook is for the sole use of the student to whom it is assigned. Under no circumstances should it be loaned to other students or be out of the personal possession of the assigned student. 

  4. The student is responsible for the following parts:

    • Chromebook (replacement cost up to $300)

    • Chromebook charger (replacement cost $35)

    • Chromebook carrying case (replacement cost $35)

    • Chromebook screen (replacement cost $90)

    • Chromebook keyboard (replacement cost $90)

  5. Students must use the Chromebook case they are provided with, and no other non-electronic items should be placed in the bag.

  6. The Chromebook can be taken home for homework as assigned by the classroom teacher and should be available for use in class every day and fully charged. Students who do not remember to do so may be required to keep their Chromebook in school in a separate charging cabinet.

  7. At times the Chromebook may be collected to provide routine maintenance. 

  8. Any Chromebook or assigned accessory unaccounted for or broken at any time during the school year will be charged to the student at the replacement rate listed in #4. 

  9. Region 12 has made arrangements for SMART Tech Insurance Co. to provide optional but highly recommended ANNUAL insurance for the device. See insurance information under the “Chromebook Insurance Program” tab in the navigation bar.

  10. If a student is no longer enrolled at Shepaug Valley School the Chromebook and all accessories must be immediately returned to the IT Department. 

  11. If there is a problem with the device, the IT office must be notified as soon as possible.

  12. These rules are subject to modification at the discretion of Region 12 should the need arise. 

These Terms of Use must be agreed to via a form in PowerSchool before the Chromebook will be issued each year.
