School Council, Societies and Parent Groups Insurance Program - Increasingly, parents are taking on more active roles in the schools their children attend, particularly with respect to fundraising. The activities of parent groups, councils or societies may or may not be covered under their respective school boards’ liability insurance policies. In cases where activities are run independently, without direct oversight of a school employee or trustee, these parent groups may require their own liability insurance protection. Access Marsh's Group Insurance Application form here.
