Professional Liability Insurance
Why school leaders need it… All school districts in Kentucky provide general liability coverage to their employees to protect the in the performance of their duties. This coverage usually provides at least $1 million in liability protection, along with legal representation in the event of a lawsuit. KASA premier members or other KASA members who purchase professional liability insurance (PLI) receive an additional $1 million in “excess” coverage (accessed if and when the primary, district-provided coverage is exhausted).
