Student Device Insurance

Student device insurance is offered to families of CRPUSD students in Middle School and High School and covers accidental damages to an individual student's school issued device for the period of 1 school year. If a family has 2 or more students, they must purchase insurance for each individual student per year. Insurance may be purchased during the first few weeks of the school year, unless enrolling mid-year, and is valid until the beginning of the following school year.

Insurance covers 2 separate damage incidents during the school year in which it is purchased. Devices with hardware or software malfunctions that are not caused by damage will be repaired free of charge regardless of insurance coverage. Lost devices are not covered under insurance and will be charged the full replacement cost of the device minus the cost of any insurance already purchased. Stolen devices will be replaced free of charge if a police report is filed and provided to the district. Insurance is not necessary for Elementary student devices. 

Student Device Insurance is closed for the 2023-2024 school year.
