Please review the insurance options and select which option is right for your family.
Option 1: School Insurance
All families are encouraged to purchase school insurance to protect the Chromebook against accidental repair costs.
August 21, 2019 – June 2, 2020 Insurance Rate: $40 with $0 deductible ($100 cap per family)
Effective Coverage: Immediately when student receives their Chromebook if payment for insurance has been received.
Expiration Date: June 2, 2020 or the day a student withdraws from school, whichever comes first. If a student withdraws from the Westonka Public School District for any reason, this insurance agreement becomes null and void on that date. There are no refunds once this agreement becomes active on the date the Chromebook is issued. Devices not returned on the date of withdrawal will be reported to collections for replacement cost.

All repairs to Chromebooks are done in district by our Westonka Tech Interns (WTI) program. Families are only charged for the replacement parts. Families with insurance will not be billed for repairs covered by insurance. Repair costs can be paid via cash or check to the media center in your school.
All families must complete the Insurance Form prior to the start of school or before starting at MWHS or GMS. Insurance fees can be paid online or via cash or check (ISD 277) to the main office.
