Northwest Allen County Schools
Device Protection Plan - 2019-20

Northwest Allen County Schools is pleased to continue our NACS EDGE initiative, equipping each K-12 student with a laptop or Chromebook for use in their education. It is the student's responsibility to protect the device from damage, loss, or theft. All repairs must be handled only by the NACS Technology Department. This optional Device Protection Plan offers some assistance in managing expenses due to accidental damage.

Program Enrollment:

  • The cost of the program is an annual, non-refundable fee of $25, payable to the school by cash or check, or by credit/debit card in the Online Payments section of the NACS website.
  • Coverage begins upon receipt of payment and this signed agreement.
  • Coverage ends when the device is returned at the end of the school year or upon withdrawal. If the device remains with the student over summer break, coverage ends at the start of the first day of the new school year.
  • To enroll in the program after the device has been delivered to the student, the device must first be inspected by the Technology Department and any needed repairs must be made at full cost before coverage will go into effect.
  • Program enrollment remains with the student, even if the original device is replaced by another unit. It is not transferable to another student.
  • As this is an optional program, fees for students on a free or reduced lunch program are not discounted.

Program Coverage:

  • This Device Protection Plan covers the NACS laptop or Chromebook, AC adapter, and case.
  • Repairs deemed by the NACS Technology Department to be due to defect or issues that would normally be covered under a manufacturer's warranty will be made at no charge to the student, regardless of participation in this program. Such repairs will not count against the student's total cost of repairs for purposes of this program.
  • Damages deemed by administration to be intentional are not covered by this plan and the student will be charged the full cost of the repairs or device replacement. Such repairs will not count against the student's total cost of repairs for purposes of this program.
  • Loss or theft of the device is not covered by this program. The student is responsible for the full replacement cost if the device is lost or stolen. (The Lenovo 11e laptop is approximately $450; the Chromebook is approximately $328.)
  • For other repairs, the student will be charged 25% of the cost of the replacement part(s) needed. There is no charge for labor.
  • Approximate cost for common parts and resulting charge to student with and without this plan:

To enroll, complete the form linked at the top of the page and return it with payment to the school office. Payment may also be made online at https://nacs.revtrak.net/. Note: once laptop has been delivered to the student, enrollment also requires a signature from media center staff verifying that the device is not damaged prior to enrollment.
