Bjorn,

When your parents pay $45 for $350 coverage, is that per unit or does that cover multiple units per household?

This year I had parents pay $45 for $350 of coverage with a $25 deductible.  Last year I think it was $50 for a $450 policy with the $25 deductible.   Not the best deal but nobody had any problems.

Next year I think I will put an opt-out clause, basically parents can choose to pay the insurance, or be liable for any repair costs.    I am also toying with a BYOD option if they choose.

MSJ tech forms are here: http://www.msjvermont.org/admissions/technology-forms

Some parents even added their own personal ipad and laptops to the policy.

I make the students buy insurance through http://www.studentinsurancepartners.com/ and I have been happy with the service.  They let me as the tech of the school deal with any issues, but the insurance policy is purchased directly by the parents and is in the parents name.

Hi all,
We're revisiting this topic and wondering if anyone has any new insights or experience with fees and/or insurance for their netbook initiatives.
If you have your students pay a "Technology Fee", what seems to be the right amount?  Is it a yearly fee?

Also...  what plans, if any, for these netbooks when student move on to a new school in the district or graduate? 
Has any one explored the idea of students buying the device after X number of years?


thanks,
Luis

Hi All,
 
I know there have been a lot of conversations on 1:1 initiatives, so forgive me if this is a repeated request. 
 
In South Burlington, we are working on a 1:1 laptop rollout for 8th and 9th graders next year and we are interested in how other schools with 1:1s are handling:
 
·         Policies for theft and damage
·         Fees (if any) to cover insurance or other related costs
·         Student guidelines and expectations
 
Thanks,
