Device Protection Plan

South Washington County Schools is offering families the option of purchasing a Device Protection Plan to protect personal devices provided to students by the district. The plan provides coverage for accidental damage to the device; damage from fire, flood, natural disasters, or power surges; and theft (with filed police report).

The participation cost for those choosing to enroll in the Device Protection Plan is $20 annually per device. Families who qualify for federal educational benefits, such as free and reduced meals, will also be eligible for reduced pricing ($10 annually per device) on the plan or free coverage by the plan. If families are eligible, the pricing will automatically be reflected in each student’s FeePay account. In addition, families with multiple children will not pay more than $90 per year for Device Protection Plans. Payment on Device Protection Plans is due upon issuing of the student’s device. The protection fee is nonrefundable. Coverage begins upon receipt of the payment and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled school year.
