All students in Grades 6-12 attending Rutherford Public Schools have been or will be issued a Chromebook to use in school and at home.
Each Chromebook comes with a limited factory warranty which covers the cost of repair for manufacturer defects. Damages due to accidents or abuse/neglect are the responsibility of the student and subject to the cost of repair or replacement of the device. Lost or stolen Chromebooks must be replaced and will incur a charge totaling the replacement cost.
The District does not provide insurance coverage on the Chromebook. There are cost-effective insurance companies that work with many school districts and have plans specifically for Chromebooks. One such company is Worth Ave Group.
If you are interested in purchasing insurance through Worth Ave Group, the cost is $25.00 per device. The Rutherford portal is open from: August 14 – September 30 and can be accessed via this link: https://gpo.
The insurance portal will ask for the student id. This can be found by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on Demographic Info — the number is listed as student number on the Demographics screen. You can also view your child’s report card — the number is listed as Local ID or LID. If you have an issue finding the student ID simply type in 000. If you are unsure of the Chromebook model please use the following — Grade 6 & 7: 3100; Grade 8: 3120; Grade 9: 3100; Grades 10, 11 & 12: 3180.
Rutherford Public Schools does not receive payments or incentives for recommending any insurer which is a third-party company separate from Rutherford Public Schools.
