Garnet Valley School District is self-insuring all devices. The fee to lease the device for the 2019-2020 school year will be $50.00 per student, per device with a $50 deductible for damage and a $150 deductible for theft or loss; $50 deductible for the charger. The deductible is charged for each incident and is in addition to the leasing fee. The leasing fee is designed to be as fair and equitable as possible and, as a result, fees are set at levels that will not discourage participation in the program. Therefore, fees are set within a structure that represents underlying costs, as well as the fee policies of surrounding districts for technology. You may not substitute homeowners or other personal insurance for District-procured Laptop insurance.
