8.3 Device Protection Plan
Each student may obtain insurance protection.
Device Protection is available for students and parents to cover device replacement in the event of theft, loss, or accidental damage by fire. The protection cost is $50.00 annually for each device. The cost of repairs will be deducted from the $50.00 insurance. The insurance will cover one claim over $50.00 for breakage. Lost devices will not be covered under warranty, stolen devices will be covered if immediately notified to the office, and a police report is filed. Any additional claim will be full price replacement after that. Insurance can be purchased annually. Insurance will not be offered after a breakage. Replacement devices may be refurbished or repaired devices.
All insurance claims must be reported to the office. Students or parents must file a police or fire report and bring a copy of the report to the principal’s office before a device can be repaired or replaced with School District Protection.
Fraudulent reporting of theft, loss, or accidental damage will be turned over to the police and insurance company for prosecution. A student making a false report will also be subject to disciplinary action.
The District will work with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department to alert pawnshops and police departments in the area to be aware of this District-owned equipment.
