The Benefits of K-12 Chromebook Insurance for a Seamless Learning Experience

Share article


In today’s digital age, K-12 schools are increasingly adopting 1:1 technology programs, with Chromebooks playing a central role in students’ education. With such a significant investment in technology, schools face the challenge of maintaining their devices and bearing the costs of repair or replacement in case of accidental damage or loss.

Given the importance of these devices in a K-12 learning environment and the potential risks involved, safeguarding your school’s investment in its 1:1 technology program is essential. The insurers we work with offer specialized K-12 Chromebook insurance plans that protect students’ devices, save on school expenses, and ensure the efficacy of your device initiative.

What does Chromebook insurance entail? Chromebook insurance provides coverage for accidental damage not included in the manufacturer’s standard warranty, such as cracked screens, liquid spills, and drops. In addition to accidental damage, the insurance plans we can propose will also protect your Chromebooks against theft, fire, flood, and power surges.

Is Chromebook insurance for K-12 schools a wise choice? Definitely. Chromebooks have become an integral part of modern classrooms, offering numerous advantages for students and educators alike. Despite vigilant supervision and teaching students about device care, accidents can happen anytime and anywhere – at school, home, the lunchroom, on the school bus, the playground, or even inside backpacks!

Chromebooks are not immune to damage, and accidental incidents can lead to unforeseen expenses. Planning for such costs can be challenging for schools, especially when it means students are left without the necessary tools for classroom assignments or homework. Chromebook insurance is an ideal solution for K-12 students when the risk of damage is high, and repairs or replacements are expensive.

Why should K-12 schools invest in Chromebook insurance? It’s no secret that school-issued Chromebooks require ongoing protection from accidental damage. Students, despite their best efforts, can damage devices in numerous ways. Multiply these incidents by hundreds or even thousands of students, and the impact on your school’s budget becomes significant. Without an insurance plan, broken Chromebooks can strain the school district’s finances for costly repairs or replacements. Parents already have enough to handle. Chromebook insurance helps prevent the burden from falling on them as well.

Additionally, Chromebook insurance offers peace of mind for K-12 administrators who need to address device repairs or replacements quickly and efficiently. With a device insurance insurance policy, you can trust that your provider will handle these concerns.

What does Chromebook insurance cover? The insurance plans available accommodate all Chromebook makes and models, regardless of whether they are new, used, or refurbished. Coverage includes:

  • Cracked screens
  • Spills and liquid submersion
  • Accidental damage (drops)
  • Theft and vandalism
  • Fire, flood, and natural disasters
  • Power surges due to lightning
  • Defects or failures (available as an add-on for K-12 group policies)


What is not covered by Chromebook insurance? The insurance plans offer comprehensive coverage but exclude:

  • Intentional damage
  • Cosmetic damage
  • Lost Coverage


Why opt for Chromebook insurance? The insurers we work with recognize the investment K-12 schools make in their 1:1 technology programs and the challenges of managing devices in a school environment.
