Franklin Public Schools: Chromebook registration and Optional Insurance School year 2022-2023

The Franklin Public Schools Chromebook optional insurance program provides coverage against accidental damage (drops, spills, etc.)  There is no deductible and no limit to the number of claims that can be made for a Chromebook. Insurance can be purchased only via online payment and only during the open enrollment window, beginning now through October 15, 2022

Coverage Option - The cost for coverage is $45 per year, per device with lower rates for those who qualify for free/reduced meals.  Coverage includes Accidental Damage from cracked screens and liquid spills, liquid submersion,  fire, flood damage, vandalism, natural disasters, and power surge due to lightning.

NOT COVERED:  Intentional damage, case carvings, broken chargers, will not be covered. Additionally, if a device is lost or stolen (as determined by our insurance provider), families may be responsible for the total cost of the device. Please note that full loss due to theft is only covered when accompanied by a police report.

Note: While the insurance is OPTIONAL,  those choosing NOT to insure devices will be responsible for the full replacement cost of $250.00 should an accident or loss occur.  Full replacement cost will be the only option available and partial costs to repair a damaged chromebook will not be considered regardless of the damage as we do not repair these devices in-house. This form must be completed for each device your child/children may have.
