My School Bucks for Chromebook Insurance

My Schools Bucks is available for Chromebook Insurance protection purchase.

Insurance is not required but highly recommended. Only $20 vs. the nearly $400 to replace a lost or damaged item.

You will need your student's # to purchase and you will need to pick LMS as the school.

Chromebook Insurance Information

ADP - Additional Damage Protection (Chromebook Insurance)


Families are responsible for the cost of repairs or replacing the device. Families can purchase device insurance to help reduce these potential costs for $20. Insurance may be purchased through MySchoolBucks on the school website or by dropping off a check to the school bookkeeper.


If you choose to purchase the ADP coverage for the Chromebook for $20 a year. This coverage is as follows:

  • 1st incident of accidental damage or loss of Chromebook: No cost. However, if the equipment is lost or stolen, the student and/or parent/guardian must file a police report with the School Resource Officer within 48 hours. The student and/or parent/guardian must immediately report to school personnel any damage to or the loss or malfunctioning of the equipment.

  • 2nd incident of accidental damage or loss of Chromebook: Repair cost or 50% of the replacement, whichever is less

  • 3rd and subsequent incident of accidental damage or loss: 100% of repair or replacement, whichever is less

  • NOTE: The charger and bag are not covered by the ADP.

The optional insurance will be available beginning August 23 via My School Bucks or direct payment through the school Bookkeeper. Students will have until 5pm, Friday, September 17th to purchase insurance.

Students who purchased insurance on their currently-issued device from last year, are still covered until 5pm, Tuesday August 31st or until they receive a new device, whichever comes first.
