Each student who is issued his/her own dedicated Chromebook is responsible for maintaining a 100% working device at all times, and is responsible for full payment of the device to St. Barnabas if it is damaged, lost, or stolen.
While insurance is optional, it’s highly recommend insurance be purchased by each student/family in grades 6 - 8. It’s also highly recommended that each student/family in grades 3 - 5 opt for insurance, as students are transporting the devices between classes. Students in Pre-K through 2nd grade who only have access to the shared Chromebook cart do not need to purchase insurance.
The School’s insurance partner for school issued devices is Worth Avenue, and the cost is very nominal and affordable for the year. The enrollment time period with Worth Avenue is always limited to the beginning of the school year.
Alternatively, you may choose to add your student's device to your homeowner's or renter’s insurance policy.
