First, find out how the screens were cracked. I would guess that most of the broken screens were caused by carelessness. Have all students been adequately trained on the proper care and handling of the Chromebooks? If not, this should be a top priority. The PCs should each have their own protective case and should not be carried loosely under one’s arm without one - the smooth, thin, slippery machines are too easily dropped. Maybe everyone should be allowed to remove the Chromebooks from the classroom only if they are transported in a backpack or satchel. Why not consider a strict one-strike policy regarding the consequences for a damaged computer (not limited to the screen)? Take-home privileges would be lost after one incident. Serious problems require a serious response.
