The West Warwick Public Schools launched their 1:1 Chromebook Initiative for all K-12 students  during the 2014-15 school year. The program has been incredibly successful in providing students and teachers the tools necessary for communication, collaboration and content creation in the K-12 classroom. Although students and parents signed paperwork asserting their responsibility in caring for, and the replacement of damaged Chromebooks the district decided to forgo charging students for accidental damage during the 2014-15 school year. The complete policy can be reviewed on the district’s website.


This past practice will change during the 2015-16 school year, and students will be asked to pay for the replacement parts for accidental or willful damage of their Chromebook, as outlined in the above mentioned documents. The most common repairs are listed below as well as the sliding scale cost determined by a student’s lunch status.

If families are finding it difficult to pay the associated fees the parents, students, and the school administration can discuss a mutually agreeable community service project that the student can perform instead of incurring the associated fees.
