School Councils who purchased insurance
for the November 1, 2020 to November 1, 2021 policy year continue to be insured
under the same policy until January 1, 2022. An extension has been provided.
Due to the challenging insurance market
conditions, we continue to evaluate the need for purchasing separate insurance
coverage for School Councils as well as the handling of risk and insurance
related matters for the future.
School Council insurance coverage
consists of a commercial general liability policy related to losses resulting
from School Council events, members participating in School Council and TDSB
sanctioned activities, for example, liability coverage resulting from an
individual injured at a School Council fun fair that was approved by the
Principal and in turn, claims against a School Council and most often, would
include the TDSB. Losses related to and covered under a non-commercial general
liability policy, such as property, cyber, drone, automobile or crime
insurance, are not covered.
All School Councils should ensure that events
and activities are both pre-approved and approved/sanctioned by the school
If you are planning an event, in
addition to receiving pre-approval from the Principal, note the event planning
pointers in the TDSB Excursion and Event Facilities Directory:
