The Board has the responsibility to maintain an adequate and comprehensive insurance program to protect the property and equipment under its control and individuals discharging responsibilities for the school district. It will seek adequate appropriations for such coverage. The Board may also authorize and participate in an insurance program for staff members and students.
The responsibility for overseeing the district’s total insurance program will be delegated to the Superintendent. The Superintendent will prepare for review and approval by the Board, specifications for insurance coverage of various types so that the insurance may be placed by competitive quotations. Any modification of these specifications, which may be considered necessary because of changes in the law or substantial changes in the school district’s exposure values, will be brought before the Board for its consideration and action.
