Should assistive technology devices be insured?
It is the school district's decision to carry insurance. School district insurance policies may cover an assistive technology device purchased by the district for student use or may offer additional coverage that includes assistive technology devices. Assistive technology devices purchased by funding sources other than the school may or may not be covered while the student is on school premises or involved in school activities. It is important for school staff to investigate the district's insurance to determine what the policy currently covers and whether or not the policy insures against loss or damage of assistive technology devices.
