Student Chromebook Replacement Costs for K-8 Students
Beginning in March of 2020, students were issued district Chromebooks and agreed to return the equipment to PVSchools in the condition that it was given. Parents/Guardians accepted responsibility for this equipment during the checkout period and agreed that they will be held personally liable if it is lost, stolen, or damaged. Students will be charged the actual cost of replacement if the Chromebook and charger aren’t returned with only normal wear and tear. See below for replacement cost:
Replacement Cost for Chromebook: $150
Replacement Cost for Charger (Adapter): $20
Screen Damage: $50
Brand New Dell Chromebooks: $393
We provide students with supportive learning environments that include rich academic and extracurricular experiences, interventions, and programs to prepare them for a successful future.

Website Resources for Students
- Accelerated Reader (must access via Clever/Renaissance Place) allows students to take quizzes on books they have read and see their progress. AR testing is available Monday - Friday, 7:45 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. Testing is not available over the summer and word count resets each school year.
- AR Bookfinder – Search for books that have AR Quizzes. If the book does not have an AR Quiz, email Mrs. Benjamin with the Book Title and Author and she can make a request to have a quiz made. NOTE: Just because a request is made does not guarantee the company will make a quiz for it.
- Follett Destiny – Find a book in the Desert Trails library collection or read online eBooks. It’s an easy way to find fiction and nonfiction books using criteria such as interest level, title, author, subject, award-winners, state lists, and more.

- PV Assist – PV Assist is an Information Technology support site which will help students and their families navigate logins/passwords, issues with Chromebooks, Google Classroom, and much more.
