House Bill 16-1013 – “School District Crime Insurance In Lieu Of Bonds”

Concerning authorizing school districts to purchase crime insurance coverage in lieu of surety bonds

Summary:

Current law requires the secretary, assistant secretary, treasurer, and assistant treasurer of a school board and any person authorized by the board to be the custodian of money of the school district to obtain a surety bond before taking office. Additionally, a school board is required to obtain and pay for a surety bond for any person who is likely to have custody of $50 or more of school district money.
