A Message from SELF CEO Dave George


As I write this, another school year is wrapping up across California.  Graduation, promotions and other ceremonies are in full swing.  District business offices are working hard to finalize budgets and prepare for the uncertainty of California’s budget forecasts next year and following.  Enrollment and ADA are trending downward statewide as demographic shifts continue to play themselves out following COVID. 

For anyone in school business long enough, these cycles are familiar.  But the outcome and extent are never known for certain.  Insurance follows economic cycles as well.  Member owned Insurance pools such as SELF support schools in managing insurance costs over time.  This comes from both being a partner when an unfortunate loss occurs, which could financially devastate any single district; but it also happens in managing the economic insurance cycles which occur. 

Keeping costs within budget, setting sustainable rates over time and maintaining partnerships over the long term – all of these are benefits of member owned and driven organizations like SELF.  Thirty-seven years strong, and proud to partner with members educating 2.85 million students across the state of California.
