Grades 7, 8, & 9! Register Your Student’s Project Connect iPad for Insurance Coverage by August 1

The information below is for students entering Grades 7, 8 and 9 ONLY! An informational mailing regarding Project Connect will be sent to home addresses in August for students entering Grade 6.

As part of the district’s wide-ranging and multi-year Innovations in Education Plan, Project Connect will continue to put iPads into the hands of all Grade 6, 7, 8 and 9 students in the 2017-18 school year. Project Connect will further embed project-based learning throughout the curriculum and utilize technology as a tool for personalizing instruction for every student.

Prior to the issuance of a student device by NHSD, parents/guardians (Grades  7, 8 & 9) MUST accept or decline insurance coverage via an online process at

Parents/guardians of students entering Grade 7, 8 and 9 MUST review the insurance and coverage information detailed here and register their student’s device ASAP.

On this page, you also can review information about submitting required paperwork both online and in person (Grades 7, 8 and 9).

Whether you accept or decline insurance coverage, you must still register your student’s device.

The deadline to register your student’s device and accept or decline insurance coverage is August 1. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to accept or decline insurance coverage.

You will need your child’s student identification number in order to register your student’s device. This number was included on your child’s 2016-17 second semester report card.

The insurance premium will be $35 per student, per year with specified deductible(s). If parents/guardian(s) choose to decline insurance, they will be held financially responsible for all uninsured damage, service, or replacement of the device. Parents/guardian(s) may not substitute homeowners or other personal insurance for district-procured device insurance.

Students enrolled in the federal free and reduced lunch program in the 2016-17 school year will not be charged the $35 insurance fee.
