We provide our Members with an outstanding combination of broad coverage and competitive pricing. Members’ physical assets (buildings, contents, etc.) are covered under this program against most risks of physical loss or damage, including flood.
Through participation in a larger consortium, CSRM is able to leverage the significant values insured to great effect, resulting in a stable, comprehensive, and competitive program designed specifically for public entities.
Included is a quote for excess liability provided by the Schools Excess Liability Fund JPA (SELF). As an independent JPA, SELF has enjoyed a successful working relationship with the members of CSRM for 30 plus years. The partnership between the two JPAs provides a seamless corridor of active participation on the executive committee(s) and the board of directors. Although the members of CSRM prefer to participate with SELF, the choice for any single member district to participate with the SELF JPA for excess liability is optional.
We provide a Builder’s Risk Extension in our Memorandum of Coverage which provides comprehensive property coverage for new construction, reconstruction, modernization and renovation projects. Its benefits include greater sub limits and broader coverage than what is provided in a standard commercial Builder’s Risk policy.
Equipment is exposed to unique risks that other property is not, such as electrical short circuits and mechanical forces. Unbudgeted losses from a breakdown can be extremely costly, and in many cases, greatly impact the bottom line. Therefore, equipment breakdown coverage is needed to pay for the financial loss incurred as a consequence of a breakdown.
Coverage against all risks of physical loss or damage for Electronic Data Processing Property and Active Data Processing Media (Media is hereby defined as all forms of Converted Data and/or Program and/or Instruction Vehicles employed in the Insured’s Data Processing Operation).
Crime insurance protects our members from theft of assets, such as cash, wire transfers, fraud, and forgery.
We provide Directors & Officers coverage, which provides financial protection for the directors and officers in the event they are sued in conjunction with the performance of their duties as they relate to the JPA.
While the Memorandum of Coverage has always provided full limits of coverage for third-party cyber liability relating to data breaches, members realized more protection was necessary for this evolving risk. The Board of Directors voted to incorporate the first party property coverage that generally constitutes the majority of costs for member districts following a data breach incident.
Coverage specifically when used for educational purposes.
Auto physical damage covers direct physical loss or damage to an “auto,” including its equipment, that are the property of the Member or similar property of others for which the member is responsible, per Member Schedule of Values on file with CSRM.
Coverage for defense cost and fees related to disease, illness, or condition directly or indirectly caused by, or arising out of, or contributed to by, one or more of any pathogen(s), including but not limited to bacteria, viruses, including diseases arising out of Coronavirus (i.e. COVID-19), MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and any other group of related viruses, markers, microbial agents, microorganisms, biological organisms, parasites, insects, protozoa, or any other source, combination, variant or mutation thereof, capable of transmission or spreading by any means from any source.
In general, coverage is provided for direct physical loss to the property from a flood which is described as:
A general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation from:
•Overflow of inland or tidal waters
•Unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source
Coverage for defense cost and fees.
Coverage for bodily injury, property damage, and cleanup costs caused by pollution conditions at scheduled owned or leased sites or arising from certain operations.
CSRM will provide Student Medical Payments Liability Fund payments up to a maximum of $5,000 per occurrence for any student injured while in the care, custody, and control of the Member during a Member sponsored activity. This coverage will only provide payments in excess of all other applicable insurance policies and will only provide reimbursement for the deductible in cases where primary insurance exists. CSRM may provide coverage for students without insurance on a hardship basis.
We strongly encourage our members to enroll in our comprehensive underground storage tank coverage. For a quote and how to enroll, please contact the JPA.
The deadly weapons program (ADWRP) covers property damage including business interruption, crises management services, counseling services, funeral expenses, and demo/clearance and memorialization. Additionally, the policy covers crisis management services (pre and post event). Pre-event services include providing a security vulnerability assessment and education seminar. Post-event services include crisis management accessed via a direct call, additional security, counseling, funeral expenses, and monitoring of social media.
Employment Practice Civil Lawsuits. We also have an extended sublimit for Injunctive Relief, Communicable Disease Defense, and Title IX matters. CSRM’s staff and leadership continue to strengthen our long-term relationships with brokers, insurers, and third-party administrators, and are therefore able to implement creative solutions to address the range of problems that come from handling liability claims. JPA staff will personally assist each member district in matching counsel to the specific case so that you have choice as to whom is representing your interest.
Because we are member driven it also means that we listen by developing program limits suited to your current needs, deductibles matched for your loss history, and even help you with reportable losses.
When you participate in our pool, we work with you to control reportable claims so that your loss run clearly defines the district’s losses. Bring your nuisance value claims to us and let us work with you on resolving them outside of litigation, and learn from us so that you can reduce
