Due to the global supply chain issues and the effect on Chromebook parts price and availability, we are asking students to be extra diligent with the care of their Chromebooks. For example, a replacement non-touchscreen has increased from $28 to $45-60. For students with a Chromebook Protection Plan, this cost will be covered, but students without will be billed at the new market price. We will continue to source parts at the lowest cost available, but this increase has been unexpected and out of our control. Students wishing to use a protective case are encouraged to do so.
