Our Mission & History
ASCIP’s mission is to provide the highest quality of service and the most extensive coverage available to its members at a competitive price.
Our philosophy of efficient operations and fiscal prudence has resulted in a net position of over $200 million while enabling us to extend coverage to a student population of 1.3 million and a total insured value in excess of $28 billion.
Formed in 1980 as a joint purchase program, the Alliance of Schools for Cooperative Insurance Programs (ASCIP) became a risk sharing pool in 1985. ASCIP is a non-profit public agency Joint Powers Authority (JPA) that provides liability, property, workers’ compensation, health benefits coverage and school construction insurance to public school districts, charter schools, community colleges, and subsidiary JPAs throughout the state of California.
