ANNUAL STUDENT CHROMEBOOK PROTECTION PLAN

SoWashCo Schools is offering families the option of purchasing a Device Protection Plan to protect district-issued devices from accidental damage to the device; damage from fire, flood, natural disasters, or power surges; and theft (with a filed police report).

The participation cost for those choosing to enroll in the Device Protection Plan is $20 annually, per device. This is an ANNUAL protection plan where families renew each fall. (Families who waive the Device Protection Plan will be responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement of the device. The district issued device accessories, charging cable, power adapter “brick” and case (for iPad) are not covered by the plan.)

Families who qualify for federal educational benefits, such as free and reduced-price meals, will also be eligible for reduced pricing ($10 annually per device) or free coverage. If families are eligible, the pricing will automatically be calculated at checkout. In addition, families with multiple children will not pay more than $60 per year for Device Protection Plans. Payment on Device Protection Plans is due upon issuing of the student’s device. The protection fee is non-refundable. Coverage begins upon receipt of the payment and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled school year.

Families can sign up and pay for the device protection plan through the SmartSchoolK12 website.

All electronic technologies must be used in accordance with the educational program and mission of South Washington County Schools. Although issued to the student, the iPad or Chromebook is and remains the property of South Washington County Schools. It may be reviewed and revoked at any time. The student should have NO expectation of privacy regarding content on the iPad or Chromebook.

Please note that families who waive the device protection plan will be responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement of the device. If you have any issues signing up and paying for the device protection plan, please contact fees@sowashco.org.
