The South Park School District issues Chromebooks to all students in grades K-12 as part of its one-to-one initiative. Students in grades K-8 will receive their Chromebooks at the beginning of the school year. Students in 9th grade and new high school students will receive their Chromebooks at orientation or on the first day of school.

Students in grades 1, 5, and 9 will be issued new Chromebooks. All returning students in grades 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 will receive their previous Chromebook.

An optional Chromebook protection plan is available for families to purchase. The South Park School District is now accepting online payments through PayPal for 2021-2022 Chromebook protection plans. Plus, families who purchase a protection plan by August 19 can save 10%.

The  protection plan covers the Chromebook loaned to the student against a single incident of accidental damage. The following items are not covered:

  • A Chromebook that is lost or stolen

  • Damage caused by negligence or neglect such as leaving it outside or in an automobile, by food or drink, caused by pets, rough handling, excessive sliding across rough surfaces

  • Intentional misuse of one’s own or peer’s device

  • More than one accidental incident, including more than one broken screen or accessories

This coverage is effective from the date payment is received and expires on the last day of school in June 2022.

It is agreed and understood that the protection plan is offered to all students, and participation in the protection plan is voluntary. It will be the right of the building principal or his/her designee to determine whether damages were accidental or due to negligence. The administration will review all damages determined to be from misuse or negligence and will assess the student’s continued privilege of taking the Chromebook to or from school.

The regular cost of the protection plan is $30 for the first child, $25 each for the second and third children and $20 each for any additional children. Families who purchase 2021-2022 Chromebook protection plans by August 19 will receive 10% off the price of a protection plan. 

No in-person payments or cash will be accepted. All payments must be made online through PayPal or by check mailed to the school office.

To purchase a Chromebook Protection Plan, follow these steps:

  1. Complete this online form.

  2. After submitting the online form, you will be directed to PayPal where you must submit your payment. You have not officially received the Chromebook protection plan until you submit payment. Those who fill out the online form but do not submit payment through PayPal will not be enrolled in the Chromebook Protection Plan.

The last day to purchase protection plans online will be Wednesday, September 8.  Protection plans will not be available for purchase after September 8 except for new enrolling students.
