FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUGUST 11th, 2020

The Wilmington Area School District plans to waive the 1:1 device insurance fee for the 20/21 school year.  This fee is typically charged to middle and high school parents annually to cover accidental damage repair costs.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the district understands that many families have been affected financially.  Additionally, this allows the district to avoid collecting payments and therefor putting staff members at risk.   Note that the insurance covers only accidental damage.  As always, repair costs for intentional or negligent damage will be the responsibility of the student or parent. 
Additionally, the "1:1 Handbook" has been updated and posted.  It can be viewed here:   https://5il.co/jchs
In the coming weeks, every applicable student and a parent/guardian will be required to sign the agreement (last page of the 1:1 handbook).  Details and instructions coming soon.
