Optional Laptop Insurance Program - Revision #3 (Approved June 14, 2022)

  • Effective September 15, 2021, FUSD allows students/parents to participate in the FUSD 1:1 Technology Initiative program without a mandatory fee. Instead, all students will have free access to a district laptop, and students/parents will be held responsible for any damage to the device.

    As part of the FUSD 1:1 Technology Initiative, a parent/guardian has the option to enroll in FUSD’s Laptop Insurance Program. Enrollment in the program is optional and minimizes the potential repair and/or replacement costs associated with the device. By selecting this program, a parent/guardian agrees to pay a non-refundable annual fee of $50 to be enrolled in the Laptop Insurance Program. If a device becomes damaged, the student will take it to the school’s Tech Center (9-12) or front office (K8) for assessment and repair. If the device is stolen while at school, the incident must be reported by the student to their teacher or front office within 24 hours. If the device is stolen outside of school, a parent/guardian must file a police report within 48 hours. A copy of the report must be turned in to the school principal. Enrollment in the Laptop Insurance Program does not begin until the annual $50 payment has been received.

    You will have one week (five working days) from the time the device is checked out to enroll in this insurance program.

    Students have one week (five working days) to report any damage(s) or impurities to their assigned Technology Team.
