We're revisiting this topic and wondering if anyone has any new insights or experience with fees and/or insurance for their netbook initiatives.
If you have your students pay a "Technology Fee", what seems to be the right amount? Is it a yearly fee?
Also... what plans, if any, for these netbooks when student move on to a new school in the district or graduate?
Has any one explored the idea of students buying the device after X number of years?

I know there have been a lot of conversations on 1:1 initiatives, so forgive me if this is a repeated request.
In South Burlington, we are working on a 1:1 laptop rollout for 8th and 9th graders next year and we are interested in how other schools with 1:1s are handling:
· Policies for theft and damage
· Fees (if any) to cover insurance or other related costs
· Student guidelines and expectations
