Reporting a Damaged or Lost Chromebook
We understand that accidents happen and Chromebooks are an important tool in today’s education. Please follow the steps below to report any loss or damage to your IUSD Chromebook. We will exchange your damaged device for a working one to minimize any disruption to your child's learning.

- Damage Assessment - If you did not choose to purchase the IUSD Chromebook Insurance and your device is damaged, the cost of the repair will be assessed as a fine to the student’s record in Destiny. Fine amounts may vary by model and by the extent of the damage. You will be notified of the actual cost after the device has been inspected by a technician.
