Risk Management/Insurance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Tuolumne County Board of Education strongly supports a risk management program that protects County Office resources and promotes the safety of students, staff and the public.

The Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools or designee shall establish a risk management program that uses effective safety and loss control practices. The County Office shall strive to keep its liability at a minimum and its insurance premiums as low as possible while maintaining adequate protection. To determine the most economical means of insuring the County Office consistent with required services, the County Superintendent or designee shall annually review the County Office's options for obtaining coverage, including qualified insurance agents, a joint powers agency, self-insurance or a combination of these means.

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

To attempt to minimize the County Office's exposure to liability, the County Office shall adopt clear policies related to discrimination, harassment, safety procedures, and the timely handling of claims. The County Superintendent or designee shall ensure that these policies and related procedures are enforced fairly and consistently.
