I'm essentially the tech department at my school, and it's kind of a position I was thrust into. There was no tech infrastructure or anything in place before I began, so most of what I have is made from scratch from the network to the forms parents need to sign so their kids can use tech at the beginning of the year. We have a form that states that parents/students are responsible for any damages/loss inflicted on the tech while in the use of the student. But I don't really know how to enforce that. We only had one case of real damage this year, and I'm wondering how I should go about informing the parent of possible damage costs. (Maybe not in this case, but in the future, if something really damages a chromebook -- I used glue to piece this one back together). Physical damage isn't covered under warranty, so if one was broken to the point that it no longer worked, we would have to pay to replace it. Anyway, if students break a piece of technology or even textbooks, etc. do you keep your parents responsible for the cost of repair or replacement or does your school just eat the cost?
