  DEVICE INSURANCE  

As has always been district policy, each student is responsible for any damages that occur to their chromebook or iPad just as they would for damage to a textbook or library book. In the past parents would have to pay completely out of pocket for damages. This year, we are adding an option to purchase insurance for your child's device should any damages occur. Replacement cost for these devices can be up to $350. For approximately $25e, your child's device will be covered for the entire school year. This is not something the district is collecting, but a premium that would be paid directly to the insurance company for coverage.

 

Device Insurance plans are available for all students grades 3-12.  Insurance is highly recommended, but optional.  Once a BCISD student is assigned a device, parents will be able to purchase device insurance at https://www.securranty.com/BridgeCityISD-Insurance by providing student information and the Asset ID# of the device.  Asset ID#'s are listed on the "Equipment Use Agreement" form that parents/students will sign and return upon device checkout. 

Please see policy information flyer below:

  INTERNET SERVICE  

If you are unable to receive either of the following free services due to living in an area where it is not provided, please contact your child's teacher for more options available from BCISD.
