SBPS Device Repair Incentive Program
Scottsbluff Public Schools offers the opportunity to participate in the optional SBPS Device Repair Incentive Program designed to help students and families alleviate some of the financial responsibility for device repairs and/or replacement.
Total cost for participation is $30.00/$15.00* per device, per school year (*reduced for students who qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch Program). Participation is indicated by and effective upon fee payment online or direct payment to school bookkeeper. Participation Fees are non-refundable.
The program applies to any device assigned to the student and potentially defrays the cost of damage and/or loss. Damaged, lost, or stolen devices should be reported immediately according to the process described during orientation. Lost or stolen devices should also be reported to school officials and authorities (Police) within 24 hours and a police report must be filed in the school office.
The total cost of repairs or device replacement will be determined by SBPS. Program participants receive a $30 credit toward repairs after paying the participation fee. Participants pay 50% of all repairs/replacement in excess of the $30 Participation Fee (per the schedule of repairs and fines).
This incentive program will not apply to damage caused as a result of gross negligence or purposeful damage will not be covered and the district reserves the right to discontinue participation for students with unusually high numbers of claims. Such discontinuation will be effective 10 days after notification to the student and parent/guardian.
Effective and Expiration Dates
The program is effective from the date of the participation fee payment through the date at which the device is returned in good condition or the first student day of the next school year.
