The Insuring of Schools: Everybody's Business. A C.A.R.E. Special Report.
Allen, Clifford H.
Insurance is necessary to protect school district assets and assure the ongoing educational program. It may be purchased economically and serve its designed purpose only if trustees and administrators understand its function and seek professional help in its application. This report discusses in lay terms the nature of insurance as one means, among others, of protecting school district funds and property to the advantage of all persons interested in the best possible educational program, and discusses some areas wherein board members, administrators, teachers, parents, and students may seek cooperative methods to protect their educational facilities. While there are many types of insurance, for the purpose of this report, a brief review is made of only three major areas of coverage consisting of fire insurance, liability insurance, and workmen's compensation. For each of the three areas the report discusses California State statutory requirements and coverage limits. The paper also discusses briefly the concept of risk management. (Author/JF)
