Student insurance opportunities
The Ballard County Board of Education purchases basic and catastrophic accident insurance coverage for all district students, which is in force during school time and for school-sponsored activities. Complete information about this coverage may be found in the Code of Behavioral Expectations. 
Accidents must be reported to the school as soon as possible after they occur. Any student who is injured at school or during a school-sponsored activity should contact the secretary in his/her building. The secretary will have student accident reports and the insurance packet. Additional 24-hour coverage may be purchased for a fee; forms were sent home with students at the beginning of the school year.
