Professional Liability and Legal Assistance
The National Association of Elementary School Principals’ in-dues professional liability plan with legal assistance benefits is the solution to uncertain or inadequate liability coverage. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that if your school district doesn’t have sufficient coverage or refuses to defend you, your back-up plan is in place. Your association’s affiliation with the Trust for Insuring Educators (TIE) makes this valuable member benefit possible.
Your in-dues plan pays up to $2 million for damages arising from professional liability and employment liability lawsuits. It pays defense costs in addition to the liability limit for professional liability lawsuits.
In addition, if you are subject to a job-related due-process proceeding, NAESP’s legal benefits program* will reimburse up to $1,000 of legal expenses for each year of continuous membership, to a maximum of $10,000 (subject to a $500 deductible per claim). *Available to members in the Active, Institutional Active, Assistant Principal, and Emeritus membership categories only.
The plan becomes effective the date your membership is accepted by NAESP and continues as long as you remain an NAESP member in good standing and NAESP continues to offer this professional liability plan with legal assistance benefits as an in-dues member benefit.
If you are an independent contractor you may not be covered under this professional plan with legal assistance benefits.
