Every year, K12 school districts face challenges related to device damages and losses. Damage protection plans offer a solution to help mitigate the financial impact of device repair on school districts.

A damage protection plan for school devices is coverage that protects school-owned devices, like laptop computers, tablets, and other electronic equipment, from accidental damages or loss. Coverage is usually provided by the manufacturer’s warranty, retailers, or third-party providers as an additional service or an extension of the device’s warranty.
