Devices - Procedures, Damages and Fees

  • Last Updated: November 16, 2020

    Damages

    Please bring your damaged Pembroke assigned Chromebook to your school as soon as you realize it is broken. If your child is attending school remotely, please contact your child’s regular school to arrange a device drop off. Please note that devices must be sent to Pembroke Public Schools for repairs. Taking Pembroke devices to any other provider will void our warranty with the device.

    Some damages are covered by Pembroke technicians and others require us to send the Chromebook out for repair.

     

    Warranty

    Warranties don't cover spills in or on the unit, drops, falls, screen breaks, and electrical surges that occur in the course of the normal intended use of the product. Warranties do not cover cosmetic damage and/or other damage that doesn't affect the device’s functionality or intentional damage. For details on your child’s device’s warranty, please read the form you received and signed when picking up the device.

     

    Fees

    If your child’s device is broken beyond the total cost, there will be a replacement fee for the damage. The fee varies between $300-$320 depending on device. We have flexible payment options available. More details are available in the form you signed when picking up the device. A set list of fees for Chromebooks can be found here, and for iPads here.

     

    Theft

    Theft is not covered for most grade levels. However, we have options to lock down the device if the device is lost or stolen with directions on where to return the device. If your device is missing, please let your child’s teacher know ASAP so this process can be started.
