Tech Equity Chromebook Insurance
There is a financial liability associated with taking home the Chromebooks, much like a textbook. However, unlike textbooks, insurance can be obtained for the Chromebook. PUSD has brokered an insurance deal with the Worth Ave. Group to obtain a policy for the Chromebooks. Parent/guardians who opt-in for the insurance will incur the cost of the insurance policy. If at the end of the policy if the student is still in the district and wishes to continue insurance coverage the policy will have to be renewed. Please note:
- The district will charge 100% of the cost for any replacement of a Chromebook checked out to the student that is not insured.
- If, while using a loaner Chromebook, a student intentionally damages the device the district will charge a fine of 100% of the cost for any repair to or replacement of the Chromebook.
- If, while using a loaner Chromebook, the device is stolen or lost the district will charge a fine of 100% of the cost to replace the device.
Insurance is not a requirement to participate in the program.
When insurance is not purchased for the Tech Equity devices individuals are assuming full financial responsibility for their devices and will need to check the appropriate box on the Insurance/Liability Form and return it to their school site before checking out the device(s).
*Please note: One accidental damage per year is covered at no cost to PUSD families by the lease agreement with Dell and PUSD. Purchased insurance is only needed to cover theft of a device.
