2020-2021 Chromebook Insurance
Posted on 09/14/2020
South Windsor Public Schools offers insurance for school-issued Chromebooks and iPads for the cost of $26 through Worth Ave. Insurance. Insurance coverage is for one year and expires August 20, 2021. We encourage 100% participation in the insurance program.

Students are held personally and monetarily responsible for any loss or damage caused by intentional vandalism or negligence concerning assigned district electronic devices. The insurance will cover stolen devices with a police report and accidental damage. It will not cover lost devices or malicious acts.

To join the insurance program, you may pay online OR make out a check for $26 to SWPS (write "Chromebook Insurance" (grades 3-12), or "iPad Insurance" (for K-2) and the student’s ID in the memo line). Complete the application online and turn in your payment to the main office of your student's school.

Note for parents of second grade students: when the Chromebooks arrive we will collect the student iPads as we distribute the Chromebooks. If you purchase insurance for the iPad you will also be insured for the Chromebook. There is no need to purchase additional insurance when the devices are swapped.

South Windsor Schools is using MySchoolBucks to collect online Chromebook/iPad Insurance fees this year. If you do not have an account with MySchoolBucks, you can follow the steps on the information page by clicking on the link below.
