IPAD INSURANCE & OPT OUT FORM
For the 2019-2020 school year, EPSD9 offered optional iPad insurance to students and families. This annual insurance is effective from August 19, 2019 to September 14, 2020.
During the 2020-2021 school year, EPSD9 will offer optional iPad insurance to students and families. The annual insurance will be effective from August 11, 2020-September 7, 2021. The cost for the insurance is $25.00. There is a family cap of $100.00. Insurance will provide coverage for repair or replacement on and off school grounds for incidents described below. Without insurance, students will be responsible for all repair or replacements costs.
If your student did not have insurance for the 2019-20 school year, their school for the 2020-21 year will need to verify the condition of the iPad prior to accepting insurance payment. Before the iPad is insured, the device must be inspected to ensure it's:
1. Operational: Demonstrate that the device powers on
2. Free of cracks on the screen: best to see this with the screen lit up
3. The case is in fair condition and can protect the device (flap attached or keyboard present during inspection)
Note: Students with keyboards: Both parts (case frame and detachable keyboard that serves as a protective cover) should be accounted for at the inspection.
iPad Insurance can be purchased for $25.00 online through ParentVue under optional fees or you can go into your child’s school office to sign up. Schools may require an opt-out signature.

Accidental damage (drops/spills)
Power surge by lightning
