School Crisis Act
This new coverage expansion has been added to the pool package at no charge to our Members.

Through this grant we were able to provide reimbursement for a number of expenses incurred that were not covered under an insurance claim. CSDSIP crafted a School Crisis Act Coverage which allows Members to have certain non-claim related expenses covered in the event of a defined act such as attorney fees for the Member and board counsel after the event, media specialist to assist the Member during the aftermath of a crisis, additional labor costs for administrative functions, etc.
