What’s New at ASCIP...

More Services for Members!

Did you know that 20 percent of all liability claims incurred by ASCIP members are related to employment practices and that each claim costs an average of $62,000?  These claims are costly to litigate, time-consuming to defend for district staff and may involve an award of attorney fees.

Given this exposure, ASCIP now offers assistance to members to help prevent these types of employment related claims.  Not only does ASCIP offer the Human Resources (HR) Hotline for members to ask questions of an employment practices attorney at no cost to the member, but now we also offer members HR assessments and consultation services.  These new services include determining current level of human resources compliance with state and federal requirements, reviewing practices and procedures, including those used for hiring, interviewing and completing reference checks, as well as, assisting with policy, program or HR Handbook development, again at no cost to ASCIP members.

Please contact your ASCIP Risk Services consultant or call (562) 404-8029 should you have any questions or if you would like discuss how these services can assist your district avoid costly employment practices litigation.

Coming Soon……A New Memorandum of Coverage for the Property & Liability Program!
May 23, 2016

We know that even with so many dedicated and hard-working staff at our member agencies, accidents can still happen and tragedies can strike without warning.   It is at those times when our members most need the Property & Liability coverage ASCIP provides.  For almost four decades, ASCIP has focused on providing broad coverage that protects our members when those accidents and tragic events occur, is easy to understand, and evolves to keep our members protected when hazards and risks to students and the public change.  For instance, when cyber threats and privacy legislation accelerated over the last decade, ASCIP responded by adding new coverage and services through an innovative specific Cyber Coverage in 2013.

As part of that tradition and commitment to our members, we are excited to announce that ASCIP is preparing a comprehensive revision to ASCIP’s Property & Liability Memorandum of Coverage (MOC).  The purpose of the revision is NOT to reduce or restrict coverage our members already receive, but to continue to improve the coverage.  The Board established the following goals for the revision:
