Excess Liability Program - Charter School Application Process

 

Charter schools can have coverage through SELF in two ways. 


1. By direct application and membership
2. As a charter affiliate - added by its parent district 


Typically a charter school will apply for coverage directly when the Charter agreement or sponsoring school district agreement requires that the charter school obtain its own coverage. If a charter has its own governing board, it must go through the complete application process. 
 

Membership approval can be backdated up to 30 days prior to the date the completed documents are received by the SELF office. The Board or Executive Committee meet monthly. You can check for the next meeting by checking the SELF Meetings section. 
 

For membership, we require the charter school to complete the following:


Application Documents to Complete
 

1. A Liability Program Application Form 
 

2. A signed JPA Agreement

 

3. Board Resolution to join SELF 
 


4. Proof of valid underlying coverage such as an insurance binder or declaration page. If the underlying coverage is through a member JPA, no further documentation is required. 


5. In some cases, a loss run may be required. 


6. Copies of the school's charter document, memorandum of understanding with sponsoring district or county office, articles of incorporation, bylaws and/or any other relevant documentation. 


Once these items are received from the charter school, we submit to the Board or Executive committee for approval. 


As a member of SELF, the charter school will receive correspondence such as newsletters and annual reports. 
       
Excess Liability Program (Charter School Affiliate Registration Process)    

  
A school district that is already a member in SELF's Excess Liability Program must register any charter affiliates with SELF to ensure coverage.

       
A Charter Affiliate is defined by SELF as:    

  

  1. A Charter School that is sponsored by the parent member district and is not required by its charter agreement to obtain its own coverage;

  2. A Charter School that does not have its own governing board
