Dear 10th Grade Families:
The Newton Public Schools (NPS) has partnered with the Worth Ave. Group to provide optional insurance to protect the Chromebooks used by the school’s students as part of the 1:1 Initiative. The Chromebooks will be distributed to the 10th graders in January. Please retain this document as it provides information and the link to purchase the insurance should you wish to do so. The deadline to purchase the insurance is January 31, 2019.
Insurance with Worth Ave. Group will protect the Chromebook against:
- Accidental damage (drops/spills)
- Cracked Screen
- Fire, Flood and Natural Disaster
- Liquid Submersion
- Power surge due to lightning strikes
This 3rd-party insurance policy will provide replacement cost coverage and protect the Chromebook worldwide (on and off school grounds).
The cost for the Chromebook insurance coverage will be $16.30 for the rest of the school year and covers up to the $275 replacement cost. Since students will have the Chromebooks until they graduate, you will be able to renew this insurance in June. There are no deductibles on these policies.
The Newton Public Schools will not be handling any paperwork or payments. All communication must be made to the Worth Ave. Group directly. Families can purchase the insurance online at the link below.
