CHROMEBOOK Insurance Policy

  • Apache Junction Unified School District

    Self-Insurance Policy


    Apache Junction School District is self-insured; so please help us keep premiums and deductibles low by taking very good care of the Chromebook.  The provisions in this policy restrict coverage.  Please read this policy to understand your family’s rights and responsibilities and what is covered.  


    A.  Costs

    1.  Yearly premium of $25. This premium is good for one school year.


    2. If there is a claim for insurance coverage, there is a standard per-breakage deductible of $25 for the first two claims. 

    3. Students, who have insurance claims on their Chromebook more than two times during a school year, for their regular, loaner, or replacement Chromebook, will face higher per-breakage deductibles. The deductible for the third insurance claim, and any claims thereafter, will be $50 per claim. 

    4. The school administration has the final say in determining insurance and repair situations.

    5. After the second week of school, no refunds will be issued.   

    6. Insurance premium are due 10 school days following student enrollment date. 

    B.  Covered Equipment

    1. The insurance provided applies to any Chromebook issued to your child by the Apache Junction Unified School District, whether it is the originally issued Chromebook, a loaner, or a replacement.

    2. The deductible is the same, whether the machine is the original, a loaner, or a replacement Chromebook.

    3. There will not be an additional premium for the use of a Chromebook loaner.  Your child’s yearly $25 premium covers their original Chromebook and any other Chromebook  issued to your child for the current school year.

    4. Chargers: Chromebook chargers that are damaged or broken are not included in the insurance coverage and will be replaced at a cost of $40 for each occurrence. If a charger tip breaks off inside the Chromebook and cannot be removed, there will be a $40 replacement charger fee as well as the deductable fee, if applicable.

    C.  Exclusions

    Apache Junction Unified School District will not pay for loss or damage caused by or resulting from the following:

    1. Not informing the Technology Department immediately of damage to the device may void the insurance coverage for that incident. Examples being: damage from a liquid spill, dropping of the device that may expose internal parts.

    2. Damage caused by your failure to provide adequate protection for the device. An example would be placing the device in a non-approved carrying case and/or no protective case in use.

    3. Loss caused by inappropriate electrical use by using an inappropriate charger.

    4. Dishonest, fraudulent, or criminal acts.

    5. Theft not accompanied by a police report.

    D.  Claim Procedures

    1. Go directly to your school’s technology room.

    2. The Technology Department will examine the Chromebook to determine if there is a qualified insurance claim.

    3. If there is a claim, the computer technician will fill out the appropriate paperwork and inform the office staff.  You will receive a telephone call, letter, and/or email from office staff when a claim is filed on your child’s Chromebook.

    4. Once the claim is in process, a loaner will be issued to the student.

    5. In cases of theft or disappearance, a copy of a police report must accompany the student before a loaner Chromebook is issued.  The police report must also directly mention the theft of the Chromebook and the circumstances surrounding the theft.
