The following claims are covered by our coverage policy; accidental damage, cracked screens, drops, liquid damage, theft, fire, flood, natural disasters and power surge due to lightning.
This coverage will provide replacement cost and protect the mobile device (on and off school grounds). The cost is per incident (2 incidents per year; after 2 incidents the full repair cost will be charged). The initial fee of $26 covers your first repair if necessary, you will be fined an additional $26 for a 2nd repair if needed. Any additional repair will be billed at the full rate for the necessary repair. Loss of the device is not covered unless it is a theft with accompanying police report.
