Claims for damaged devices may be handled in any of the following ways:
The claims process for lost and stolen devices is straight forward. A claim is filed and a payment goes to the parent to reimburse the school. A police report is required for stolen devices.
SDC will customize and implement the best solution to support your district and your students' families.
Must all schools in a district participate in the insurance?
No. SDC will provide insurance on all or just one school in a district.
What are the insurance payment options?
Credit card and checks.
Can districts make insurance mandatory?
Requiring parents to purchase insurance is done by many school districts.
Can districts send an Excel or CSV spreadsheet to SDC with all of their issued devices?
Yes. SDC's goal is to make the process easy for the districts/schools. Typically, if districts mandate parents purchase insurance, then you know the students and serial numbers. You may send us a spreadsheet of the issued devices.
Is there a limit on the number of claims a family may file on a device per year?
No. There is no limit on the number of claims that can be filed. Some students have multiple claims and some students never have a claim. That's the nature of insurance.
How long does it take for the insurance to be set up and coordinated between SDC and the district?
Planning ahead is always prudent. The details can be determined on a phone call, but it takes time for SDC to create flyers and distribute them to your district/schools. We prefer to have everything completed at least a week before school starts.
Two simple questions will determine the path a district takes regarding insurance.
