General usage statement:
Whereas technology is fundamental to academic success at DePaul Catholic, it is essential the tablets be kept in good working order. Unfortunately, accidents happen. Damage that prevents effective use of the Tablet PC as an academic tool must be addressed immediately.
The majority of repairs are done on the premises of DePaul Catholic HS by trained personnel using genuine OEM parts. In the event a part is not immediately available, the student will be issued a loaner Tablet. As long as it is not a hard drive issue, if the hard drive is removable, the student’s original hard drive, with data intact, will be dropped into the loaner. Whenever possible, the loaner Tablet is the same model as the student’s original Tablet and, as such, should be treated with the same care. Damages done to the loaner Tablet while in the possession of the student are billable.
Accidental Damage Insurance:
Beginning with the Class of 2018, Accidental Damage Insurance fees appear on book bills. The unibody construction of the newer tablets makes repairs increasingly expensive. In the long run, an accidental damage plan is a prudent investment. The two PDFs to the right provide a bit more information about the plans.
