Do I need to buy insurance for my MISD-issued iPad?
This is up to you.
MISD-issued iPads come with these protections already:
- MISD iPads are covered by Apple Care +, a warranty plan that protects against damage (subject to $49 deductibles for two instances over two years and the terms of the iPad User Agreement).
- MISD technicians work on malfunctioning district-owned iPads.
- The district provides a case that protects the device from damage.
- Parents who have purchased theft coverage in the past have paid $50 or more per year with a $50 deductible. MISD iPads are now covered for three years at no additional cost to parents. If an iPad is stolen and the student has complied with the terms of the iPad User Agreement, his/her liability is limited to $50, which is covered by the deposit. Another deposit will be needed to get a new device.
