There are times when technology breaks or fails. The Britton-Hecla School District will cover the costs associated with mechanical failures in these instances. However, if the equipment is damaged due to mistreatment or neglect by the student, it will be the student who is responsible for the replacement costs regardless of the protection policy chosen.
Students will be responsible for replacement of any parts that are lost and/or damaged due to neglect or mistreatment. Students will be responsible for these costs regardless of what protection policy was
Intentional or neglectful damage may be, but is not limited to, the following: cuts, punctures, cracks, use of tools on machine, damage due to liquid or condensation from extreme temperature, damage from food, drink, or other substance, parts broken or missing from the machine.
Below are the replacement costs for each item that is lost or damaged needing professional repair:
* Power cord - $20
* Battery = $50
* Screen = $50
* Cracked outer case or lid = $50
* Liquid or debris damage = $25
* Broken ports or missing keys = $10 each
*If a student has subsequent incidents of damage or neglect, the student will still be responsible for the costs of replacement. Further, a meeting between the student and the administration will be held to determine the consequences of their actions.
