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

Subject: Re: 1:1 PoliciesI 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.Bjorn Behrendt ~ Never Stop LearningGoogle Apps For Education Certified TrainerServices: Webdesign, Consulting, Training via WebExMy SitesJoin me: Feb 6th at 3:15est for the first GWPodcast Google Hangout: More InfoOn Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 2:40 PM, Luis Bango <[log in to unmask]> wrote: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?
