Device Waiver Fee

As part of the District’s 1:1 initiative, every Haverhill Public Schools student receives a HPS-issued Chromebook. HPS offers the opportunity to protect school-issued devices for the school year by paying a Device Waiver Fee. As outlined in the HPS Student Technology Device Policy, this $20 fee will help to cover the costs of potential damage, repair, or loss for the school year for the assigned device. Please note: issues of theft should still be reported to the police.

The Device Waiver Fee is available for purchase throughout the school year.

What does it cost?

Cost of Insurance

Only $20 covers:

  • All parts
  • Damage / Loss* / Theft*

With unlimited claims and zero deductibles for the school year!

*Cases of Loss/Theft will require a police report within 5 days of incident

Replacement Cost Without Insurance

If the annual optional Damage Waiver Fee is not purchased, the typical cost of repairing components, where an invoice could be sent to the family, is as follows:

  • Charger – $39
  • LCD Screen – $80
  • Top/Bottom Cover – $30-35
  • Keyboard – $70
  • Trackpad – $10
  • Device Replacement (for loss or when damage to the device is unrepairable) – $199
