  • Policies purchased at any time between those dates will terminate at the end of the school year.
  • Students must pay all fees for damages or loss incurred prior to the purchase of any Student Device Insurance before the terms of the Student Device Insurance will go into effect.
  • If new students enroll after the initial purchase window has closed, families will have 3 weeks to purchase insurance. 

Cost

Coverage cost - $25 per semester. Policies will not be prorated.

Refunds

There will be no refunds. If a student drops from the school, and then returns later in the school year, the policy will still be in effect until the expiration date of the original policy.

Insured Student Devices Will be Repaired Using the Following Fee Chart

 

Your duties in the event of loss or damage

  1. Students must report any problem with their student device(s) immediately after noticing any malfunctions. BCSD staff will determine if the problem is covered under manufacturer’s warranty, insurance, etc.
  2. Notify the local police if the loss is due to theft, burglary, robbery, or vandalism. You must then provide the official police report to the school/district staff.

Settlement Options

Bibb County School District will pay for the cost of repair of the insured device to include parts and labor, minus any applicable fee. While a student’s device is being repaired the student will use a classroom computer. If a lost or stolen device is paid for according to the chart above, the Bibb County School District will issue an equivalent replacement for use during the remainder of the school year and the policy will transfer to the new device.

Fraud, Concealment, and Misrepresentation

Coverage may be denied if the student willfully defrauds, conceals, and/or misrepresents any material information about the cause of damage or loss of the device.

Policy Portability

If a student transfers to another Bibb County School District site during the policy term, the coverage will transfer to the new site and remain in effect until the end of the term. If a student transfers to a site outside of Bibb County School District the coverage does not transfer to the new district and the device must be returned to Bibb County School District. However, if the student transfers back to a Bibb County School District site before the end of the term, the coverage will remain in effect until the end of the term.
