Liability Insurance

In accordance with State law, the School District will maintain annually renewed insurance policies to protect, reimburse and indemnify the School District, the School District’s elected officials, employees and covered third parties from damages that may result from a covered act or omission arising out of the good faith performance of their duties, while acting within the scope of their employment. Other than the minimum required amount of Bus Fleet Liability Insurance and workers compensation insurance, the Superintendent of Schools is authorized to determine other necessary types, coverage terms and amounts of insurance. All liability insurance policies will include the cost to defend any claim made which will include the payment of an attorney hired by the insurance company to defend the School District, as well as its elected officials and employees. The School Board may expend State, Federal or local funds, or any combination thereof for such purposes. The School Board will not be required to pay damages or provide a defense outside of insurance for any employee or official acting outside the scope of their duties, obligations, contracts or mandates.
