Common Types of Insurance Coverage Options for Educational Institutions
General Liability Coverage
Having general liability coverage is vital to protecting your institution’s assets in the event of a lawsuit stemming from student or visitor injury, negligence, slander, libel or abuse.
Commercial Property Coverage
Commercial property coverage protects structures within your school’s property, computers and other office equipment, supplies, desks, uniforms, and other assets in the event of weather-related damage, fire, theft, or vandalism.
Directors and Officers Insurance Coverage
Directors and Officers insurance (D&O) protects high-ranking officials’ personal assets in the event they’re sued due to job-related issues such as neglect, breach of duty, or mismanagement.
Educator’s Professional Liability Coverage
Educator’s professional liability coverage covers legal expenses and other miscellaneous costs for the school if a teacher or another educator causes a lawsuit or alleges the schools failure to educate.
Employment Practices Liability
Employment practices liability coverage covers costs related to discrimination, breach of employment contract, sexual harassment, and other claims related to the workplace.
Should Educational Institutions Consider an Umbrella Policy?
Kastendike Insurance Group will take the time to help school administrators understand the benefits of purchasing an additional commercial umbrella policy. If lawsuits or claims exceed the amount of general or professional liability coverage, an umbrella policy can make up that difference.
