Insurance Protection Fund (IPF)

IPF Details

[

The Parent/Guardian/Student is responsible for making an annual payment of $35 to the Insurance Protection Fund (IPF). This fund is established in order to fund repairs in the event of accidental damage to a student’s Chromebook.

[

All 1:1 participants are required to make the $35 IPF payment by September 15th of each school year.

[

The $35 IPF payment is not refundable nor prorated for partial years of student enrollment.

[

The IPF covers bonafide accidental damage, as determined by the district.

[

If equipment is found to be faulty, then it must be returned immediately to the school for repair.

Damage caused by a deliberate act of the student is not covered by this protection fund. If a Chromebook is lost or damaged due to neglect, the Parent/Guardian/Student may be liable for the full purchase price of the device.

An excess of up to $500 will apply, payable by Parent/Guardian.

A loss notification must be accompanied by the appropriate police report.

Accidental damage includes, but is not limited to:

  • Drops
  • Spills (on the keyboard)
  • Pet damage
  • Other special situations as determined by the district
Intentional damage is not covered by the Insurance Protection Fund. If a student intentionally damages a Chromebook, the Parent/Guardian/Student is responsible for the total cost of repairs.

Intentional Damage includes, but is not limited to:

  • Throwing the Chromebook
  • Hitting/Striking the Chromebook
  • Removing Keys
  • Writing on, scratching words or pictures on, or placing stickers on
  • Removing factory labels, inventory tag, etc
  • Any deliberate act of damaging the Chromebook
  • Other special situations as determined by the district
The Parent/Guardian/Student is responsible for the cost of repairs, replacement or insurance costs. If the Chromebook is lost, the Parent/Guardian/Student is responsible for the total cost of replacement.

The Insurance Protection Fund (IPF) covers bonafide accidental damage to the Chromebook and AC adapter, as determined by the district. If a student accidentally damages either of these, the parent may choose to use the insurance plan to cover the cost of repair/replacement. If the cost is minimal, the parent may choose to pay for the damage, and save the insurance for a major accident.
