PRESENTATION BY SIP:

Representatives from SIP presented to the Board regarding the School Insurance program. One of the items noted was a five year commitment to the program. The presentation began with some background information regarding the program such as long term experience of being in existence (over twenty years). A premium study was conducted by the Board of Directors in 2006-2007 noting that in 2009 calculations will be based 60% on old formula and 40% based on square footage and enrollment. These recognized changes will make premium setting more equitable amongst SIP subscribers. It was also recognized during the presentation the role SIP provides in ensuring a good insurance rate for all Boards. They also noted that SIP is working towards more web-based services. They noted that all initiatives which they are working towards are to provide better service at reduced costs.
