Insurance is Mandatory 

Secaucus Public Schools requires that parents/ guardians pay a mandatory District insurance fee before the student receives a Chromebook for their use.  This insurance plan covers the Chromebook against:
        • Mechanical Failure
        • Accidental Damage including drops, cracked screens, liquid spills
        • Theft
        • Fire/Flood
        • Vandalism
        • Natural Disasters
        • Power Surge / Lightning

  • Deductibles are associated with a claim and will increase for recurring incidents.
  • Damages that result from abuse (including picking keys from keyboards) or neglect are not covered by the plan and are the responsibility of the student. The student is then liable for full repair costs up to the cost of full replacement of the device and its Google EDU device management license.
  • In the event of theft, vandalism, or other criminal acts, the student / parent / guardian ​MUST file a report with the local police department and submit a copy to the school. A stolen or lost Chromebook will then be fully disabled and tracked to aid the police in recovery and/or prosecution.
  • The fee for a lost Chromebook will be its full replacement cost. A replacement device will not be issued until documentation is complete and / or fees are paid in full.  
  • All students are responsible without exception for deductibles, fines, and repairs or replacements that are not covered under the policy.
  • All fees are payable online.
