AGO 1960 No. 121 >  June 2, 1960
DISTRICTS - SCHOOLS - LIABILITY POLICIES IN CONNECTION WITH SCHOOL BUS OPERATIONS - MEDICAL PAYMENTS INCLUDED IN PREMIUM
DISTRICTS - SCHOOLS - LIABILITY POLICIES IN CONNECTION WITH SCHOOL BUS OPERATIONS - MEDICAL PAYMENTS INCLUDED IN PREMIUM In procuring a policy of liability insurance covering the operation of its buses, the board of directors of a school district may not pay the cost of any increased premium to provide medical payments for the passenger injured by or through its operation irrespective of liability.  Public funds may only be expended to protect the district from liability.  However, the board of directors may procure medical and accident insurance where the assenting students pay the additional cost.
