"What the Board Needs To Know About Insurance."
Podesta, Victor J.
This speech describes local school board concern over rising insurance costs, suggests an insurance pool for New Jersey public schools under Department of Education control, and discusses other insurance matters of concern to school boards. The author observes that a State Department sampling of insurance brokers who carry the bulk of student accident insurance reveals that (1) some commercial carriers do not want to write school insurance coverage, (2) sports program coverage is more comprehensive today than it was two years ago, (3) football is a big concern and the "excess provision" (that requires the carrier in situations where privately purchased insurance covers injuries to pay only excess expense not so covered) is becoming more accepted, and that (4) rates vary among school districts according to the claim experience of the district.
