STUDENT INSURANCE PROGRAM
The Central Community School Board shall make available student accident insurance for purchase for students attending Central Community public schools. An application form provided by the insurance carrier shall be sent home with students during the first week of school. For football players, an application form shall be offered to each player prior to the start of summer football practice. The schools shall not be liable for any premium payment. Claim forms shall be furnished by the insurance carrier and copies shall be available in the school office.
The School Board does not assume liability for accidents to students or to athletes who do not carry insurance nor does it assume liability for accidents to students who carry insurance beyond the policy coverage (this includes special football coverage).
EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES INSURANCE COVERAGE
The parents/legal guardians of all students, or the student if eighteen (18) years of age or older, participating on any interscholastic athletic team, including varsity football, junior varsity football, junior high football, all basketball, baseball, track, swimming, any other competitive sport for boys or girls, cheerleading squads, dance team, band, and any sponsored work-based program, shall be required to purchase student accident insurance or shall be required to sign a form declining student insurance and acknowledging full responsibility for any expenses associated with any injury suffered by the student as a result of participating in any extracurricular activity. The insurance form shall be presented to the school before the student shall be permitted to participate in any athletic or other activity for which insurance coverage is needed.
