LPS Student Computing Device Coverage Program

Lincoln Public Schools offers the opportunity to participate in the optional LPS Student Computing Device Coverage Program designed to protect students and families from full financial responsibility for device repairs and/or replacement.

An application is required for each device. ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ must be marked on the signed Responsible Use Agreement, returned to school office and payment must be received before the coverage is effective.

Premium

Total premium cost is $20.00/$10.00* per device, per school year (*reduced for students who qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch Program). Premiums are non-refundable.

Claims, Coverage and Benefit

The program covers the device loaned to the student against damage and/or loss. Damaged, lost, or stolen devices should be reported immediately according to the process described during orientation. Lost or stolen devices should also be reported to school officials and authorities (Police) within 24 hours and a police report must be filed in the school office.

Total value of repairs or device replacement will be determined by LPS. The program will pay the amount of damage or replacement per the schedule of repairs and fines listed below (the cost of labor will not be included). Damage as a result of gross negligence or purposeful damage will not be covered and the district reserves the right to discontinue participation for students with unusually high numbers of claims. Such discontinuation will be effective 30 days after notification to the student and parent/guardian.

Effective and Expiration Dates

Coverage is effective from the date of the premium payment through the date at which the device is returned in good condition or the first student day of the next school year.
