Student Devices In Beaverton Schools

A computer (e.g. Mac, PC, Chromebook or iPad) is needed for students in grades 6-12 and those attending BSD FLEX online school in order for them to do their schoolwork. All of these students have the opportunity to check out a district-owned Chromebook or iPad for use at school and at home. 

BSD provides Damage and Loss Protection Coverage for a fee of $20, or maximum fee of $60 per family, per school year. This program protects families in situations where the student’s device is damaged, lost or stolen. The $20 fee to participate in the program is waived for CEP Designated Schools and families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share portion of the Meal Benefits Application.  

Students using BSD district-owned devices may choose to decline the “Damage and Loss Protection Program”. However, this is not recommended because the family is assuming full responsibility for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it occurs.

The enrollment period for Damage Loss Protection Program coverage is no later than 60 days after the student begins school or has been issued a district-owned device. Fee payment is required prior to any damage or loss claims.

Parents indicate whether the student will be using a district device as well as whether they're choosing to have coverage from the Damage and Loss Protection Program during the Online Verification process that they are required to complete in ParentVue each fall.
