The insurance coverage of the district should provide the broadest coverage available at the most economical cost to the district, consistent with sound insurance principles. Since good service is vital to an effective insurance program, the insurance agent who is awarded any part of the district's insurance business must be able to provide prompt and efficient service.
The Superintendent of Schools may create an insurance advisory panel to assist in developing criteria for designing the insurance program for the district and to develop criteria for selection of an agent (broker of record) or agents.
All insurance other than health insurance will be put out for bid not less than every 3 years.
