Optional Device Protection Plan


The Deer Valley Unified School District is providing a device protection plan for students and parents utilizing take-home devices. Enrollment in the plan is optional with the understanding that if students/parents do not enroll in the protection plan they may carry full liability for the student device (iPad or Chromebook) in the same way they do for other damaged or lost school property, such as textbooks.

Program Fees and Coverage

  • Premium: $25 per school year. This fee is nonrefundable and will not be prorated.
  • Limit Liability:  $250 per claim
  • Coverage: Repair or replacement of school issued device and case.
  • Enrollment Deadline: Must enroll in plan prior to or within 3 days of receipt of the device.

Effective Coverage / Expiration Dates

  • Effective Date: Coverage begins when the $25 nonrefundable fee is paid.
  • Expiration Date: Coverage ends on the earliest of the following dates: last day of school year, return of device, no longer enrolled in school, or no longer qualified for the take-home device program.
  • Return the device before the expiration date to ensure that coverage is always in effect.


The Optional Device Protection Plan coverage includes:

  • Accidental damage caused by liquid, spills, drops, or other unintentional events.
  • Loss of device due to theft; claim must be accompanied by a valid police report.
  • Damage caused by fire; claim must be accompanied by official fire report from investigating authority.
  • Damage due to an electrical surge.
  • Loss or damage caused by natural disasters.


The Optional Device Protection Plan coverage excludes:

  • Damage caused by dishonest, fraudulent, intentional, negligent (not locked and/or stored in an insecure manner or location), or criminal acts. Students and parents will be responsible for the full amount of repair/replacement for damage or loss that falls in this category.
  • Damage incurred to a device that is not in the school-issued protective case, when a case is provided.
  • Consumables: USB cables, AC adapters, case, or software.
  • “Jailbreaking” or otherwise voiding the manufacturer’s warranty by altering the software. Jailbreaking is a term used to describe a process by which normal manufacturer controls on the functionality of the device are bypassed. Jailbreaking of school-issued devices is not permitted.
  • The Deer Valley Unified School District is not liable for any loss, damage (including incidental, consequential, or punitive damages), or expense caused directly or indirectly by the equipment.






 (If the device is recovered, it must be returned to school and deductible will be reimbursed.)
