MADISON COUNTY —
Insurance broker selected
When the news broke in mid-January that the longtime school district insurer, Kentucky School Boards Insurance Trust, was dissolving, 174 districts began the search for new insurance providers.
Madison County Schools started a broker search last month with a committee of central office staff, Isaacs as the board representative and the superintendent.
The committee recommendation to hire Roeding Insurance Group and Roberts Insurance and Investments was approved 5-0.
The committee interviewed five brokers, whittled down from a list of what Isaacs estimated to be about 10 to 12 applicants.
They will procure fleet, general liability, educator’s legal liability, property, worker’s compensation and pollution insurance for the 2013-14 school year.
Renfro inquired about the cost.
There is no cost yet, Isaacs said. “It is the broker’s job to contact insurance carriers and underwriters and secure for us the coverage we need at the best cost.”
Floyd said the recommended brokers had a lot of experience with Kentucky school districts.
