The school district shall maintain appropriate insurance coverage to protect the school district in event of suit or settlement resulting from an injury, accident, or death to which the school district was a party.
However, no insurance coverage shall be maintained to indemnify or pay the claims resulting from an accident or injury occurring on or in school property that was not held to be the fault of the school district.
The school district shall make available to all parents or guardians of enrolled students within thirty days of the commencement of the new school term the opportunity to purchase reasonably priced insurance of the type designed to pay ell or part of the medical costs resulting from injury of the student while on school property or otherwise involved in school sponsored activities.
No student shall be permitted to participate in an activity regarded as a contact activity- football, wrestling, etc., until the parent shall have provided to the school district activity director proof that adequate insurance coverage for injury exists or that the parent has been advised of the opportunity to purchase school insurance but declines to do so.
