School Board Legal Liability Coverage (SBLL)
The School Board Legal Liability (SBLL) Program covers former, present and future school board members, administrators, employees, and volunteers for covered damages resulting from an actual or alleged breach of duty, negligent act or error, misstatement, misleading statement or omission with up to $10 million in coverage.
In addition, the Illinois Association of School Boards ("IASB")—sponsored SBLL Program provides:
Coverage for certain types of sexual harassment* claims
Up to $500,000 of defense coverage for administrative hearings seeking injunctive and declaratory relief in special education hearings
Up to $250,000 of defense coverage for administrative hearings seeking injunctive and declaratory relief in employment disputes and redistricting activities
Up to $250,000 of defense coverage for contractual disputes with suppliers and independent contractors
Full prior acts coverage is available
Loss Control Manual that addresses risk management issues in increasingly complex areas, such as special education and employment discrimination
* Although school districts can look to the SBLL Program for coverage for certian types of verbal sexual harassment claims, most claims involving sexual abuse/molestation will fall beyond the scope of the SBLL Program. School districts should contact their general liability carrier for more information regarding coverage for sexual abuse/molestation claims.
The coverage of the SBLL Program is summarized on this web site and is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions printed in School Board Legal Liability coverage agreement. Refer to the coverage agreement for specifics on coverage and limits.
