SCHOOL BUS LIABILITY COVERAGE
The Board shall provide for insurance on district-owned buses and other Board-owned vehicles, if any.
The Bossier Parish School Board shall require personnel within the school district, who use their own vehicles while on official school business during the course of their employment, to carry automobile liability insurance. The amount of coverage shall be at least that required by state law or higher limits as set by the Board.
Persons using their own vehicles shall submit verification of coverage to the Superintendent or his/her designee before commencing any travel or being eligible for expense reimbursement.
The School Board shall not be responsible for physical damage done to an employee’s personal vehicle or items that may have been stolen from an employee’s personal vehicle.
LIABILITY FOR RENDERING HEALTH CARE
No person, who is an employee of the School Board, or his/her employer, who in good faith renders school health services and medical services which are required by state and/or federal law, rule or regulation, to be rendered to students with exceptionalities shall be liable for any civil damages as a result of any act or omission in rendering the care or services required. This also applies to any person appointed according to state and/or federal law to serve as a surrogate parent who in good faith performs functions required by his/her appointment.
This does not apply, however, to individuals who intentionally or by grossly negligent acts or omissions cause damages to a student with an exceptionality or other individual participating in a special education program for individuals with exceptionalities.
