General Insurance

The Governing Board shall maintain an adequate insurance program to protect the district against loss which may occur due to the many normal and usual hazards which a public school system faces and to carry additional insurance, when needed, to protect the district against specific and unusual hazards which may be incurred, from time to time, in the various operations of the district.

The insurance program shall include, but not be limited to:

1. Fire and Damage Insurance (building and equipment).

2. Fire and Property Damage Insurance (buses and automotive vehicles).

3. Workers Compensation Insurance.

4. Fidelity Bond Insurance.

5. Liability Insurance.

Where possible, insurance shall be placed through:

1. Full time insurance agents who are qualified for the specific

insurance program.

2. A joint powers agency.

The Board reserves the right to remove an agent-of-record or a participating agent whenever, in the judgment of the Board, such action becomes desirable for the best interests of the district.

Bonding

The Board recognizes that prudent trusteeship of the resources of the district dictate that employees responsible for the safe-keeping of district moneys and property be bonded.

The district shall be indemnified against loss of money and property by bonding of employees.

Such bonds shall be subsumed under a blanket bond. The Board shall bear the cost of bonding each employee required to be bonded by this policy. (Education Code 41021)
