Chromebook Insurance

What is the Bainbridge Island School District #303 Device Insurance?
Just as you insure your home or car to protect you from accidental damage, families attending Bainbridge Island School District (BISD) #303 may purchase insurance for school Chromebooks, also referred to as “take home devices”. 

This insurance is optional but highly recommended, as the cost of replacing an uninsured BISD device is approximately $428 compared to the annual insurance price of $35 (or January prorated price of $23.97). The insurance policy is between the parent/guardian and Worth Ave. Group.

What does device insurance cover?
As part of the Student and Parent/Guardian Take Home Device Agreement, all students and families are required to take reasonable care of BISD take home devices. Device insurance will only cover situations of accidental damage and theft, specifically: 

  • Accidental Damage
  • Earthquake & Natural Disaster
  • Liquid Submersion
  • Tornado & Hurricane
  • Cracked Screen
  • Power Surge
  • Theft, Burglary & Robbery Vandalism
  • Fire & Flood

Insurance does NOT cover damage caused by a student or a family member if it was intentional or occurs through a repeated pattern of negligence. In addition, while theft is covered, accidental loss of the Chromebook, power charger, or any peripheral item like a stylus, is not covered. In the case of a lost device or power charger, you will be required to pay the full $428 fee to replace the device and/or $36 fee to replace the charger. All fees listed do not include tax.

In the case of theft or vandalism outside of school property, a police report is required by the insurance company as documentation.

For more information about the policy, please review the PDF version of the Group Electronic Device Protection Policy.

  • Our policy is to offer accidental insurance for daily student “take home devices”, which applies to grades 5 and above. In the majority of cases, K-4 elementary students leave the devices in their classrooms, with the exception of some Mosaic students. Currently, Mosaic students in grades K-4 are covered under the same policy as other BISD K-4 schools, and therefore, families will not be fined for accidental damage or loss.
