Fees & Insurance Information
Garnet Valley School District is self-insuring all devices. The fee to lease the device for the 2018-2019 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.
Our district is committed to ensuring that no student will be denied instructional technology because of a financial hardship, therefore we will offer financial help when needed. Families who participate in this program will still be required to pay the deductible of $50 for each damaged claim and $150 for each theft or loss claim; $50 deductible for the charger.

There is no discount for families with multiple students in the high school at this time, however, there will be a fee cap of $100.00 per family. You may not substitute homeowners or other personal insurance for District-procured Laptop insurance.
Families may choose to pay the leasing fee the following ways:
- Pay online prior to pick up using My School Bucks (credit card fee of $1.50 will be added)
- Bring cash, check, or money order, payable to Garnet Valley School District, at the time of your pickup. For families with more than one student in the high school, you may use one check, however, please write the names of the students on the memo line of the check.
