Device Protection Plans
Due to supply chain shortages, it is important that students take great care of their district-issued mobile devices. Still, we know that accidents can happen. SoWashCo Schools is offering families the option of purchasing a device protection plan to protect district-issued devices from accidental damage from ﬁre, ﬂood, natural disasters, or power surges; and theft (with a ﬁled police report).
The cost for the optional plan is $20 annually per device. Families who qualify for federal educational beneﬁts, such as free and reduced-price meals, will also be eligible for reduced pricing ($10 annually per device) or free coverage. Families can sign up and pay for the device protection plan through the SmartSchoolK12 website.

Please note that families who waive the device protection plan will be responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement of the device. If you have any issues signing up and paying for the device protection plan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
