Device Protection Insurance (DPi)

Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy requires school issued insurance (DPi) be purchased each year before a student can pick up their Chromebook. The DPi has a premium of $40 per school year. The coverage takes effect once payment is received, and the Chromebook is issued to your student. It is not retroactive. Buying into the program provides coverage only during the current school year and will need to be renewed at the start of each school year. The program fee is non-refundable, and does not transfer to the next school year if the insurance is not used. When a repair needs to be made, students are responsible for a deductible based on the schedule below.

The devices will be maintained by Cardinal Stritch's IT Staff. Only Cardinal Stritch's IT Staff can perform repairs on the devices. Normal part failures outside of the control of the student and device damage are dealt with differently. The judgement call is left up to the school's technology staff.

Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook they have been assigned by the school. Chromebooks that are broken, or fail to work properly, must be reported to a classroom teacher or technology staff member as soon as possible so that they can be taken care of properly. Do not take school owned Chromebooks to an outside computer service for any type of repairs or maintenance. Once a Chromebook is damaged a loaner device will be issued while the student’s device is being repaired. Once their original device is repaired it will be returned to the student and the loaner will be collected.

Repairs

Students will bring their Chromebook, that is in need of repair, to the Technology Office to be evaluated. Each step of the repair process will be logged and recorded by the technology staff. All fees and fines will need to be paid before the device is returned to the student. Below is the Chromebook repair plan that the technology office follows:
  • Student brings his/her Chromebook to technology office.
  • Student completes the "ORANGE" Chromebook repair form.
  • If needed, a loaner Chromebook will be issued to the student during the length of repair.
  • Technology staff receives and repairs the Chromebook.
  • Student is notified of repair completion.
  • Student returns Loaner Chromebook (if applicable)
  • If needed, a loaner Chromebook will be issued to the student during the length of repair.
  • If needed, a loaner Chromebook will be issued to the student during the length of repair.
  • If needed, a loaner Chromebook will be issued to the student during the length of repair.
If an extended loaner Chromebook is issued, the student must treat their loaner Chromebook as their originally issued device.
  • A student using a Loaner Chromebook will be responsible for any damage to or loss of the loaned device.
  • Chromebooks on loan to students while having devices repaired must be returned to the Technology Department when the original device is repaired.

Deductible Schedule

When a repair needs to be made, students are responsible for a deductible based on this schedule:
  • First Incident: $0
  • Second Incident: $25
  • Third Incident: $50
  • Fourth Incident: Full cost of repairs and student loses the privilege to take the Chromebook home for the remainder of the year.

Theft/Loss of Chromebook

A Chromebook or any of it’s accessories that are lost (whereabouts unknown) or intentionally damaged is the responsibility of the student and parent involved in the loss of property. It is the responsibility of the student and parents to work with the school and/or law enforcements to help recover lost or stolen items. Lost or stolen devices are not covered under the DPi. Replacement devices and accessories must be purchased through the school and not through a outside retailer. Students and parents will be responsible for school-owned technology property that is issued to them, just as they are for other school-owned items such as textbooks, calculators, cameras, or athletics equipment.
