1:1 Chromebook Insurance Plan

Insurance Forms
Insurance forms will be sent home to parents/guardians. If an additional copy is needed, a link to download the form is below. Students are required to have a completed form with them on the day they are scheduled to pick up their Chromebooks. No devices will be distributed without a completed form.
Insurance
It is strongly recommended that every student’s device be insured through the United School District insurance plan, as part of participating in the 1:1 Chromebook Initiative. Students and parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for maintaining this equipment in the condition in which it is issued. Parent(s)/guardian(s) and students will incur all expenses resulting from damaged or lost equipment or attempts to tamper with equipment. Please note that this coverage does not carry over from year to year if it goes unused. Students with a free/reduced lunch designation will have their insurance fee waived.
 
Pricing Guidelines for Repairs and Replacements
The following chart of repair costs is provided as a reference to parents/guardians when making a decision on insurance coverage.
