Beginning September 1, 2023, all damage to student-assigned devices will be reviewed and if the damage appears to be due to negligence, accident, or intentional misuse a fine will be assessed to the family. The damaged device will be collected from the student and a new one assigned to limit disruption to learning.
To offset the potential costs related to accidental damage, Northshore School District implemented a new insurance option for families called the Device Protection Program (DPP). This optional program costs $25 per student and provides discounts on damages to devices. Under the DPP, the first accidental damage will cost the family $0. The second will be 50% of the cost of the repair. All damage beyond the 2nd event will be full cost.
The DPP does not cover loss. If a student loses their device, charging cable, or bag, the family will be fined the entire replacement cost. DPP will also not cover obvious intentional damage to a device.
Enrolment in the DPP is done using Northshore’s online payment system TouchBase athttps://wa-northshore.intouchreceipting.com/. If you do not have your NSD parent TouchBase login information, please email Sonja Gill-More at firstname.lastname@example.org.
