The Plum Borough School District has moved to a new device insurance program starting with the 4th-grade One-to-One Program rollout in the 2019-20 school year. Beginning July 1, 2020, all other students/families in the grade levels below will have the opportunity to enroll their students' devices into the new insurance program. Program renewals are based on your students' graduating year and will be updated yearly.
Note: All students/families participating in the One-to-One Insurance Program can enroll at any time. Students/Families who are not registered with insurance will be charged the full cost of the part/device broken until enrolled in the insurance program. (Please see service costs below)
What’s the difference between the old insurance program?
Families will not have to pay annually to enroll their device into the One-to-One Insurance Program.
Families will only have to pay one time to enroll the device into the insurance program. The device will then be covered for the life of the machine.
Following the one to one renewal schedule, here. Families will only have to pay to re-enroll into the One-to-One Insurance program when the student/s receives a new device based on the One-to-One Device Renewal Schedule.
No more additional insurance deductibles for the life of the insured device.
Once enrolled in the program, Families do not have to pay any additional deductibles for any subsequent occurrence(s) for the life of the student/s insured device.
