Spotlight Vendor

Sovereign Insurance Group

We have worked with Sovereign Insurance Group (a commercial insurance broker) who has partnered with the top school insurance company to create an insurance Group Purchasing program for charter schools, a National Charter School Insurance Consortium (CSIC).

As you know, charter schools are unique compared to private and public schools . Therefore , their insurance coverage should reflect those differences.

Their charter school consortium is offering the following benefits:

  1. Preferred pricing /significant volume discount
  2. Better coverage, terms, and conditions
  3. Higher Limits / Coverage for IEP/ Special Ed claims
  4. Maintain their own individual policy / not sharing in other school’s loss history
  5. Automatic coverage for Cyber Liability/Data Security
  6. Dedicated resources (risk management, webinars, seminars, training)
  7. Access to THINK HR (outsourced HR Department)
  8. Choice of Legal Counsel 

Please let us know if you are interested in receiving a quote from the program. We will be happy to provide you with an introduction to Sovereign Insurance Group and they will get you a non-binding indication.
