Chromebook Repair Assist Program

Repair Assist Opt-In Costs

The opt-in cost per student device will be $50 that can be purchased anytime through Aspire, pending certain requirements. If this option is chosen at registration or during the first week of school, coverage begins immediately. Any other time, this option will incur a two week delay in coverage. Each $50 only covers a single claim. After a claim is made, an additional $50 must be purchased for coverage to continue for the next device. 

Device Opt-In Costs - $50 
  • Students who don’t opt-in, they pay according to Chromebook depreciation schedule below
  • For students who opt-in, their repairs are covered by the ‘opt-in.’
  • $50 Opt-In (one device, one repair)
    • No repairs, end of year = $25 refund
    • Repair/Damage(s) = $0 refund
      • *null and void if device is repaired by a non-OSD approved individual.

The existing age of the device will also be considered when choosing to repair or replace a device, as older devices, might not be economical to repair. In this case the student would need to cover the prorated device asset cost. This is defined as follows.

Chromebook Depreciation Schedule

Chromebook depreciation will be based on the number of months since the original device enrollment date, the Chromebook issued date and the date the Chromebook was returned broken. The original enrollment date is the date when the device is placed into service. The total cost of a Chromebook is $252 including the power adapter and management licenses and costs for a projected usage of 72 months. This equals $3.50 a month regardless of the day of the month. Encouraging students to get their devices repaired sooner than later if damage occurs, potentially saving a month’s worth of expenses.

In simpler terms, $252 - ( $3.50 * month before issued) - ($3.50 * number of months the student has had the device) = how much the parent will need to pay to replace the Chromebook if damaged beyond reasonable repair as determined by the Ogden School District

Example:

If today's date is May 15th, 2020, and the device enrollment date was April 15th, 2018, and the device issue date to the student was August, 15, 2019. 

The cost to the student for a replacement would be the original cost minus $3.50 for each of the 13 months of use. This equates to a cost of $204.50 to replace the device ($252.00 - $45.50).
