iPad Damage, Repair, Replacement

Please see the following policies on iPad Damage Repair and Replacement for School Owned Devices and Family Owned Devices. Parents must select one of these two options upon registering their student(s).

School Owned Device:

HCCSC is offering an optional $25.00 Break/Fix Fee per student to receive discounted pricing for repairs. This fee must be paid by October 31, 2022, or 60 days after enrollment to receive discounted pricing for repairs each year. The $25 Break/Fix Fee offers one year of protection for the first two incidents of accidental damage for the deductible fee schedule indicated below in the chart. The fees listed below cover damaged and lost devices with the optional $25 Break/Fix Fee. Failure to pay the optional $25 Fee will discontinue this coverage and upon any damage, the full replacement/repair amount will be charged for each occurrence.

  • Charging Blocks & Cords: Each elementary student will be issued a block and cord along with his/her iPad. After the second break or damage to the cord and/or charging block parents/guardians will be required to purchase a new cord and/or block according to the above chart.
  • Protective Cases: Students are NOT to remove the iPad from the school issued protective case for any reason. If there is an issue that may require the case to be removed, the student should take the iPad to the Technology Lab Assistant. Removing an iPad from the protective case and causing damage to the iPad while outside of the case may result in a higher repair fee.
  • Failure to return school issued iPad: If the school issued iPad is not returned at the end of the school year or upon withdrawal from this school district or upon moving to another school district, the failure to return the school issued iPad will be considered theft or conversion of the device and this action will be turned over to locallaw enforcement for prosecution purposes.
  • Lost/stolen iPads: HCCSC will make every attempt to locate lost and stolen iPads utilizing the GPS feature. Any reported theft of an iPad will be fully investigated and reported to authorities. The student will not be charged to replace an iPad that is confirmed to be stolen.
  • Intentional Damage: Students/Parents are responsible for full payment of intentional damages to the iPad. Warranty and the HCCSC Break/Fix Fee DOES NOT cover intentional damage of the iPad. This would also include intentional damage to another student’s iPad.
  • “Jailbreaking” the device results in the loss of the Apple warranty through HCCSC. Parents & students will then be responsible for any and all fees and/or replacement of the iPad.


Family-Owned Device: The device must be an Apple iPad 5th Generation 2017 or newer in order to be compatible with all instructional apps/software currently being used in the school district.
