PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE


You may have noted that TASA Professional Liability Insurance Coverage for Superintendents was discontinued for the 2004-2005 school year. This happened because of the large number of school administrators who found themselves involved in expensive litigation.

TACS
continues to make Professional Liability Insurance available to its Individual and Professional Members at a very low cost. If your school district is a member of TACS you and each of your employees can become an Individual Member and receive $1 million coverage for $55.00* per year.  If your school district is NOT a member of TACS, then the cost for Professional Membership is $85.00*. 

How do we keep this cost so low?
Our program is offered to all school employees. We have a large number of teachers who purchase the coverage. Teachers do not find themselves involved in litigation as often as administrators, consequently keeping the premiums lower. As an administrator, you can help keep premiums low by encouraging as many of your staff as possible to enroll in this program. Many of our member districts have obtained professional liability for all of their employees as a fringe benefit.

You can enroll in this program online by going to the A.I.M. (Association Insurance Management) website at
www.aim-companies.com. Once you are there, click on Professional Liability, scroll down to Ready to purchase insurance, at the top of the online application select organization (TACS), complete the application and you will get immediate coverage using your credit card. In the event you choose to remit a check, you will be insured as soon as your check arrives at AIM.  You may also download the professional liability application if you prefer to write a check. 

*$55.00 cost includes $27.00 insurance premium, $1.34 taxes, and $16.66 TACS administrative and service fees.
*$85.00 cost includes $27.00 insurance premium, $1.34 taxes, and $46.66 TACS administrative and service fees.
