explanation is offered.

Lost or Damaged Items
The Educational Media and Resource Centre works to maintain each
resource so that it is in the best possible condition when it reaches
It is understood that from time to time items maybe damaged or lost
and to this end, a procedure has been implemented to manage the costs
for those situations.
You are encouraged to notify the EMRC team by email if you find any
discrepancy after comparing what is in the box from to what is on the
label prior to using the resource. You will find included inside the
kit, notification for any of the contents that are not included or
have been substituted.
In order to maintain resources, the EMRC will institute a fee
structure to replace missing and/or damaged parts.
- A re-stocking fee of $5 for small parts requiring replacement
for the functionality of the resource. This does not include
- 15% of the replacement value if a completely new kit is
purchased to replace missing or badly damaged parts. This would
happen in the case where it is cheaper to replace everything as a kit
than to order individual replacement parts.
- Full replacement cost for parts from a kit purchased
individually to be charged. This does include robotics.
- Books, lost or damaged, will have a full replacement cost.
All charges will be to your school. An itemized email will be sent to
and school administration will be copied on the message.
Please direct all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call extension 62749.
