SSUSD Chromebook Take Home Initiative

Chromebook Take Home Initiative:

Starting in the 2020-2021 school year, Sierra Sands Unified School District will be issuing Chromebooks to students in grades 6 through 12 in the same fashion that textbooks are issued to each student. The student will be allowed to keep their assigned Chromebook with them throughout the day at school, as well as take the Chromebook home with them each night.

Student Expectations:

The student will be responsible for taking care of the Chromebook at all times and will be required to charge the Chromebook every night and bring the fully charged Chromebook with them to school every day.  Students will receive their assigned Chromebook during the first weeks of the school year. Detailed expectations are outlined in the Device Agreement that each student and parent will be required to sign before receiving the Chromebook.

Insurance Overview:

Any assigned Chromebook and accessories that are lost, negligently cared for, or intentionally damaged is the responsibility of the student and parent involved in the loss of property.  The District has secured an affordable insurance option that will cover the Chromebook your child will be using this year. 
School Device Coverage provides an insurance option that protects the Chromebook against accidental damage, cracked screens, liquid damage, fire, flood, loss, theft, natural disasters and power surges.
The pricing for the 2020-2021 school year is:

  • $32.00 per Chromebook.

In situations where insurance has not been purchased for a Chromebook that is damaged or lost, students will be given a loaner device for use at school until the replacement, or repair cost of the lost/damaged device is paid to the school.

Buying insurance for the Chromebooks is optional, but strongly encouraged.  Parents who wish to take advantage of this opportunity will need to sign up directly with
School Device Coverage through their web portal located at:

Coverage must be purchased within 30 days of receiving the device.
