Frequently Asked Questions

How do I purchase insurance?

  • Insurance can be purchased at any time. The cost is $30 for 1 year, $40 for 2 years, and $50 for 3 years. The device will need to be free of any current damage in order to qualify for new insurance. Visit the technology office Monday - Friday between 8:00AM and 3:00PM to purchase insurance.  You can also email us at and we will contact you to arrange for payment. You can also pay online at our webstore.

What does the insurance policy cover?

  • The insurance policy covers unlimited accidental damage and defects.  If it is determined that the damage was intentional, it will not be covered.  Bent iPad frames often are considered a total loss and are often not covered.  These decisions are made by the insurance company, not Wayland Union Schools.
