Why Does Your PTA Need Insurance?

Why Does My PTA Need Insurance?
2015AM_SM.png
Your event is decorated, everyone has arrived, the fundraiser is making money and everyone is happy … But then someone gets hurt and you realize that you forgot to purchase insurance … now what? And, what if you discover some of the fundraising money was stolen?

The number one question that most PTAs face today is “Why does my PTA need insurance?”

Did you know that you, as an individual member of your PTA or an officer of your organization, could be held personally liable for an accident that occurs at one of your events?  Personal Liability means that your personal assets could be at risk if you were sued because of something that happened at one of your PTA events.

Are you willing to put your checking account, your savings account, possibly your 401k or even your assets at risk for your PTA?

Let AIM show you how to protect yourself and your PTA! 
Here are the four main types of coverage available to your PTA:
  •  General Liability with Accident Medical
    Protection against lawsuits for bodily injury or property damage liability resulting from a sponsored event. Endorsements Available:

    • Media Liability
    • Increased Accident Medical Limits
  • Bond (Commercial Crime)
    Protects your PTA’s money
  • Property 
    Protection for business personal property such as fundraising supplies, raffle items or popcorn machines.
  • Officer’s Liability (Non-Profit Association Professional Liability)
    Protection for lawsuits against officers of the PTA.
 Let AIM help you determine what coverage is right for your organization! Contact us at (800) 877-4044, visit us on our website AIM-Companies.com or come see us at booth 201 at the 2017 National PTA Convention & Expo!

What You Should Know About School-Based Law Enforcement Officers
Often parents and caretakers are unware that there are school-based police officers or “School Resource Officers (SROs)” among the school staff involved in their children’s education and discipline. Many parents may not know the scope of officers’ authority, and officers are not aware of what parents have been told about law enforcement’s role in the school. This causes anxiety, confusion, and at times produces significant problems that are hard to resolve and cast a shadow over school climate.

In an effort to support parents’ understanding, Strategies for Youth has created this “Parent’s Checklist for SROs in Your Children’s Schools” to provide parents with a set of questions that will help parents understand the scope of authority that law enforcement may have in their child’s school.

Read the full checklist.

Trump Administration Releases Budget Priorities for Fiscal Year 2018

2018BudgetGraph.jpgPresident Trump’s “skinny budget” or “blueprint” for funding priorities in Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 was released in March. President Trump’s proposal would cut funding for public education programs by $9.2 billion.

National PTA hopes President Trump’s full budget request (to be released in May) will propose funding for Statewide Family Engagement Centers, and ensure robust investments in Title I, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act state grants, Parent Training and Information Centers and other critical education grant programs.

Take Action! National PTA Extremely Disappointed with New ESSA Guidelines

The ED released a new guide for states to use in developing their education plans under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). While ESSA requires meaningful stakeholder engagement, the new guide does not compel states to include a description of how they are engaging and consulting stakeholders—like parents—in developing their plans. National PTA is extremely disappointed that stakeholder engagement is no longer prioritized in the new guide.

National PTA also created a stakeholder media toolkit at PTA.org/ESSA for you to use and share to assist PTA members in demanding state leaders to include a description of how they will meaningfully consult different stakeholders in the implementation of the new state education plans.

National PTA and Amazon Award Kindle E-Readers to Schools For National Reading Month

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (April 12, 2017)—National PTA and Amazon are pleased to award Kindle e-readers to 100 schools and PTAs across the country to encourage family reading, promote a love of literature and support student success. These schools and PTAs were selected to receive the Kindle e-readers for their leadership and commitment to the importance of family engagement and core literacy skills for children’s achievement. The donation of e-readers is part of the PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle program and was made in conjunction with National Reading Month.

“National Reading Month is a time to celebrate the importance of reading, foster children’s growth as readers and promote a lifelong love of literature,” said Laura M. Bay, president of National PTA. “We are thrilled to equip local PTAs and schools with Kindle e-readers during National Reading Month for literacy and family engagement efforts.”

PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle is a national program that engages the whole family to support the development of literacy skills and foster a love of reading. Through a set of fun, educational activities, the program empowers families with information and tools to use at home and new ways to explore reading books together.

“Families play an essential role in helping children develop their literacy skills. When families read together, children do better in school and beyond,” added Nathan R. Monell, CAE, National PTA executive director. “We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Amazon to empower families to read together and support children’s growth as readers through the Family Reading Experience program.”

National PTA announced the donation of Kindle e-readers during a PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle event at Parklawn Elementary School in Alexandria, Va. Parklawn Elementary School PTA was awarded a classroom of Kindle e-readers from National PTA and Amazon.

Principal Larry Aiello expressed his excitement for the opportunities these devices will bring to Parklawn Elementary School, stating, “As technology advances and changes the way readers access books, having effective tools to progress along with this change is vital to schools. This donation will allow us to put more books in the hands of our students and engage them in authentic literacy experiences.”

PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle was launched in 2013. Since joining forces, National PTA and Amazon have given over 3,500 Kindle e-readers to students, families and schools nationwide.

“Reading is an essential part of education which is why we, at Amazon, are dedicated to making it easier for readers to get lost in an author’s world and helping kids and families become voracious readers,” said Arthur van Rest, general manager at Kindle. “In celebration of National Reading Month, we are thrilled to again be teaming up with PTA on this program and working together to help inspire a love for reading.”

National PTA Statement on North Park Elementary School Shooting

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (April 10, 2017)The following statement can be attributed to National PTA President Laura Bay:

“National PTA is deeply saddened to hear of the shooting this afternoon at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, Calif. Our hearts, prayers and sympathies go out to the students, families, educators and administrators.

“While the facts are still being gathered, any act of violence at a school or involving children and youth is intolerable. Every student deserves to learn and grow in an environment that is safe. And the protection of students is of utmost importance. It is urgent that families, educators, community leaders and elected officials work together to make meaningful changes to ensure that all students have a safe environment in which to thrive and learn.

“It has been, and remains, a top priority of National PTA to prevent and eliminate violence in schools, promote safety for children and youth and improve education. National PTA has a strong history of supporting and advocating for laws and regulations in the areas of gun safety, violence prevention and juvenile justice.

“National PTA is committed to supporting students, families, schools and communities in coping with and preventing violence. The association offers a variety of resources that can be downloaded atPTA.org/SchoolViolence.”
