8770 - JOINT SELF-INSURANCE POOL

The School Board recognizes the benefits to the Corporation of joining with other boards of education and political subdivisions in providing coverage for the insurance needs of this Corporation and in participating in programs of risk management to prevent loss, reduce expenses, and to control liability.

The Board may, upon formal resolution duly adopted, become a member of a self insurance group in order to participate in any joint self insurance fund or funds, risk management programs, or related services offered or provided by the group. The Board's membership in the group will be governed by the bylaws of the insurance group, which must be reviewed and approved by the State Superintendent of Insurance in accordance with law.

Trustees of the school board self insurance pool shall be selected in accordance with the bylaws of the insurance group; if the bylaws do not provide for the manner of a trustee's election, the trustee or trustees representing this Board shall be elected by a plurality vote of those Board members present and voting.
