Student Technology Insurance
Bay Area Christian School has established the following student technology insurance program to offer protection from costs incurred by accidental damage to school-issued student Chromebooks.
The cost of coverage is $40 per school year and covers one, and only one, incident.
Participation in the technology insurance program is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
- Accidental Damage: Damage caused by liquid spills, drops, cracked screens or any other unintentional event.
- Theft or Vandalism: Loss due to theft or vandalism. Claims must be accompanied by an official police report.
- Electrical Surge: Damage to the device caused by an electrical surge.
- Natural Disasters: Damage caused by a natural disaster.
- Intentional or Negligent Damage: Replacement or repairs which are the result of intentional or negligent
actions. This includes, but is not limited to, the removal of keys, removal of outer rubber, removal of screws and/or opening the device.
- “Jailbreaking”: Attempts to alter the operating system or software in an effort to circumvent restrictions and/or monitoring (GoGuardian) resulting in a “bricked” device with unrecoverable software.
- Loss: Parent/guardian will be liable for the replacement cost of a device lost by the student.
- Charger: Replacement cost of lost or damaged AC adapter is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Chargers must be replaced by BACS. NO THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Coverage begins on the date the Chromebook is issued and terminates on the day the Chromebook is returned. Typically, mid-August to mid-May. No prorated pricing will be offered for new or withdrawing students.
