DISTRICT & SCHOOL EDUCATION TECH INSURANCE
Set Up Your 1:1 Insurance Program Today!

School Device Coverage does most of the set up work for you so that your 1:1 electronic devices are insured. This should come at no cost to your district!

The process is simple. For school district’s who prefer the option to allow parents to purchase insurance, SDC will create informational flyers to be handed out to students by the schools when devices are issued. The flyers will explain the insurance, associated cost, claim instructions, and how to obtain coverage.

Parents may sign up for the insurance
on our website, schooldevicecoverage.com, upon receiving the device.

Parents will provide us their name, address, student’s name, and device serial number. Upon completing the insurance purchase, the device will be covered against loss and/or damage and/or and theft for the entire school year depending on the plan chosen by your district.

SDC offers unlimited claims on insured devices, no deductible, no hidden processing fees, and full coverage transferability to loaner devices.

We have an excellent claims team and we provide personal, experienced experts who can help you every step of the way. Your call will be answered by a live, licensed agent during business hours.

EASY CLAIMS

We recognize that districts have different needs.

SDC streamlines the claims process. Most claims result from damaged devices. SDC makes it easy for parents / students to file claims, and we provide clear instructions on how a parent or student should proceed after claims are filed.

Repeat business is our objective and a simple claims process is key to keeping parents and districts happy!

CUSTOMIZATION

SDC will work with your district to implement a program that works well for the district, parents, and students.

Scenario 1: Districts provide devices to the students. Parents purchase coverage for devices on SDC's website.

Scenario 2: Districts provide devices to the students. The district informs SDC of insured devices (typically via spreadsheet).

PRICING

SDC has a lot of experience in insuring school issued devices.

We know how to assess the expected claims based on the types of devices being issued. We know repair costs for broken screens, broken keyboards, etc. We know how many devices on average will be lost, stolen, or damaged.

We want to build a relationship with your district. We will offer the best possible rate possible.

THINGS WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR PROGRAM
While it is a straight forward sign up process, there is some coordination required between us to make this the best possible experience.
Square
We need to know what devices are being issued. Chromebooks, iPads, Macbook Airs, or any other devices. The type of the device and year of device dictates the premium charged because there are substantial differences in repair/replacement costs for each device.
Square
We need an estimate on the number of devices that will be deployed.
Square
We need a list of the schools that will be participating in the program.
Square
We need to know your district's preferred method for repairing devices. Repair solution options are:
- District repairs - can your district repair screens onsite? If so, we will reimburse your district for the repairs – please provide the cost to repair the screen.
- OR - we can utilize our local repair facility - parents can drop off the device, or in some cases we can have the repair shop pick up the damaged devices.
- OR - we can utilize our mail-in depot.

LEARN ABOUT OUR 1:1 CLAIMS PROCESS
Claims are entered by the parent/student on schooldevicecoverage.com. To file a claim, they first log into their account here.
The claims process is customized and varies depending on the preferences of the district.
Claims for damaged devices may be handled in any of the following ways:
Square
SDC usually has an arrangement with a repair facility in or around your district. Parents can take the damaged device to the repair facility, or in some cases we can have the repair facility pick up the damaged devices from the school. SDC then pays the repair facility.
Square
Some districts prefer that the devices be returned to the school first for inspection. Some schools fix their own devices, and sometimes the devices are sent out for repair. SDC pays for the associated costs.
Square
SDC can send a box to the parents for mailing the damaged device to a repair facility. This is an option for districts that do not fit into the first two options.
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.
1:1 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS FOR DISTRICTS
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.
