Kemper Insurance Group, Chicago, IL.
This paper compiles results of a State-by-State survey of public school district immunity. The survey sought to discover if (1) school districts in each State have governmental immunity for liability, (2) this immunity applies only to governmental activities or to proprietary activities also, (3) board members and employees have immunity, (4) the immunity was created by the legislature or maintained by court decision, and (5) the immunity is applicable to pupil transportation. The paper notes a growing trend to deny immunity to school districts, particularly with regard to proprietary activities. (Author/JF)
