Voluntary Device Protection - Get it TODAY!
The Nampa School District strongly recommends that you purchase the optional, non-refundable Voluntary Device Protection (VDP) plan for your child’s device every year. If you have homeowner’s insurance or rental insurance, you may also be able to add a device to your insurance. Please note families are responsible for replacement if you choose not to purchase VDP and your device is lost, stolen, damaged outside of acceptable use, etc. VDP for the device is a yearly cost and does cover the charging accessories or protective cover.
VDP that is purchased at the beginning of the school year, before the October 1 cutoff date, will cover the device until the following August. VDP that is purchased after the October cutoff date will cover the device from the purchase date until the following August.
- Second Incident.....$20
The first use of VDP is free, the second incident will be charged a $20 fee. (Without VDP, $30 to replace a charger; $480 to replace the device)
What is covered under VDP?
- Lost or stolen devices. A police report must be filed. Contact your school's Resource Manager for more information.
- Unintentional damage
What is NOT covered under VDP?
- Intentional damage
- Unreturned devices. Devices not returned when leaving Nampa School District are not covered by VDP, students will be charged the full replacement cost of the device.
To add Voluntary Device Protection to your student's account, login to your Parent PowerSchool Account and make payment there, call our office and pay over the phone, 208.498.0571, or students can pay in our front office. Scholarships for VDP may be available, please talk to your school administrator for more information.
