IUSD is excited to announce a new device insurance program as a resource for parents who will be checking out a Chromebook for their student to use at home.
Parents now have the option to purchase a $20 warranty from IUSD to cover accidental damage and theft. This is a one-time fee for the school year to cover potential incidents like cracked screens, missing keyboard keys, damaged plastics, liquid spills, and theft. Funds raised from this program will be used to repair damaged devices, replace devices, and ensure our schools have enough devices to provide access to every student in IUSD.
Without insurance, typical repair costs for things like a broken screen or keyboard can range from $30-$75 depending on the model. For excessive damage, our Chromebooks have a total replacement cost of $225. Our goal is to ease parent concerns over damage to devices while in their child's care and continue to support a sustainable take-home program for our schools.
You can sign your student up for Chromebook Insurance at MySchoolBucks.com. You'll need to create an account and add in your student's information so we can associate the insurance with your child.
If you have any questions about the Insurance program, check with your school or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2020 Enrollment Window: Due to the changing academic models and varying needs for devices, we've allowed for continued enrollment in the program throughout the school year. Late enrollments will not cover prior damage to devices.
August 5, 2020 - October 9, 2020
***20/21 Enrollment window has been extended from September 4th due to the return to campus and additional device checkouts that have occurred***
