8770 Policy_Joint Self-insurance Pool

The Board of Education recognizes the benefits to the District of joining with other boards of education and political
subdivisions in providing coverage for the insurance needs of this District 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 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.
