Early reporting and active involvement by the institution and UE aressential for successful claims resolution. An institution that fails to meet the reporting responsibilities outlined in its insurance policy risks denial of coverage or loss of full benefits. Reporting considerations vary with the type of policy.
UE is committed to protecting public school communities through education-specific insurance, and a proactive approach to risk management and crisis response.
Our liability coverage agreements, which reflect over three decades of experience working with K-12 schools, combine general liability (GL), auto liability (AL), and school board legal liability (SBLL). We can also offer SBLL as a stand-alone policy. Our policies address the specific concerns of public school districts and boards of education, providing coverage for the school, trustees, superintendents, officers, employees, student teachers, volunteer workers and, in some circumstances, students and interns.
Through EduRisk™, members have access to a comprehensive suite of resources including risk management advice and interactive online courses to address risks involving students, staff, buildings and grounds, volunteers, and transportation.
ProResponse, our crisis response benefit, offers immediate assistance should a school or district need expert services to navigate tragic circumstances. And, as a result of examining thousands of public school claims, our expert claims team is prepared to efficiently address and resolve even the most challenging issues.
UE can provide capacity up to $10 million for both direct coverage and reinsurance. UE's public school liability policies include the coverage listed below.
For those seeking reinsurance for a multi-district risk pool, UE can provide a reinsuring agreement that supports the pool's underlying memorandum of coverage.
In addition to having experienced public school risk management professionals available for consultation, UE brings together members for our Annual Public School Conference. This provides an opportunity for members to meet each other and the UE team, share best practices, and network. The Public School Advisory Committee holds regular teleconferences to discuss high-priority topics.
UE's public school liability policies include coverage for acts of domestic terrorism. These policies cover hostile actions occurring in the United States, including its territories or possessions, or in Canada.
True worldwide coverage means that lawsuits do not have to be brought in U.S. courts. UE has defended against overseas negligence suits brought by foreign nationals. Our worldwide protection is even more critical as educators and students increase their foreign travel.
