507.6 Student Insurance

Code No. 507.6


Students will have the opportunity to participate in the health and accident insurance plan selected by the school district. The cost of the health and accident insurance program is borne by the student. Participation in the insurance health and accident plan is not a contract with the school district, but rather, a contract between the insurance company and the student.

Students participating in intramural or extracurricular athletics are not required to have health and accident insurance.

NOTE: Although it is a recommended practice, it is within the board's discretion to determine whether it wants to require student athletes to have insurance.
