On behalf of Governor Nathan Deal, DOAS is pleased to announce a new insurance program available to school teachers and certificated personnel effective July 1, 2016.
Our educators have an important role that impacts the lives of many of our younger Georgians. With that responsibility, you are faced with growing challenges within your schools. To address these challenges and to offer financial protection to one of our most valuable resources, the Fiscal Year 2017 appropriations act authorized the purchase of excess professional liability insurance coverage. The excess coverage will protect teachers and certificated personnel against damages arising out of the performance of their duties as employees of the school system. Coverage is as follows, subject to the limitations set forth in the policy:
The plan will be administered by the Georgia Department of Administrative Services (DOAS), Risk Management Division. Claims administration will be provided through Georgia Administrative Services.
