We have yet to do 1:1 but on staff and student shared computers we dropped the extended and accidental warranties that the district used to pay. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and use actuaries to calculate costs and risks. We have come out way ahead. Of course 1:1 tends to have a higher breakage rate.

Hi, we have a 1:1 with our high school students. We are currently paying for accidental damage insurance. We're wondering if other schools are going from accidental damage insurance to self-insurance. We're gathering data to see if our insurance is more expensive than just having a repair budget.
