The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board has the responsibility to maintain an adequate insurance program to protect the property of the parish against fire, vandalism, extended coverage, and theft; to protect the Board members and employees against liability resulting from the discharge of their duties; and to offer protection against injury for all employees while acting in behalf of the school.  The Board may also authorize and participate in an insurance program of hospitalization and medical insurance for students and employees.


The responsibility of administering the total insurance program shall be delegated to the Superintendent and the administrative staff.  Underlying such administrative delegation there will first be prepared for review and approval, specifications for insurance coverage of various types so that the insurance may be placed by competitive bid.  Any modification of these specifications which may from time to time be considered necessary because of changes in the law or substantial changes in the Board's exposure value will be brought before the Board for discussion and adoption.
