School Issued Device Insurance

All students are being issued a district Chromebook again this year. Students are directly responsible for the reimbursement cost of District-owned equipment that is uninsured and unable to be repaired within the District. For repairs costing under $300, students will be required to pay for the amount of the repair. In the event that a repair costs $300 and above, students will only be required to pay the $300 deductible (broken screen: $150, replacement of device: $250-350).

To purchase insurance for your child's District-owned device, please CLICK HERE to complete the form and submit a $20 check made payable to Upper Township School District (give check to child's Homeroom teacher) or submit via Venmo @UpperTwpMiddle and in the note section include your child's name.

Once received, your child's device will have active insurance coverage for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year. The insurance covers the cost of one major accidental damage (broken screen or total device replacement). Damages that occur prior to receipt of payment will not be covered by the District.
