The district is a member of the Metropolitan Association for Improved School Legislation (MAISL) Joint Risk Management Trust. The Trust is a group self-insurance program that provides our property, casualty, liability, and auto coverages.
MAISL has retained Gallagher Bassett Services, Inc. to administer the self-insurance program for member districts.
If an incident occurs please complete the appropriate form immediately after the incident and submit it to your building principal or program director. Completed forms should be forwarded to the Business Office. Do not submit directly to MAISL/Gallagher Bassett.

Serious losses such as large property damage, serious student injuries, serious vehicle accidents, or notification of lawsuits should be called in to Gallagher Bassett, 24 hours a day, at (248) 352-1062. Your immediate reporting to a Gallagher Bassett claim representative is critical to containing claim costs. Prompt reporting allows the adjuster to begin the investigation, visit sites, institute emergency repair and hasten the return to normal operation of the district. This should be followed up with a written claim report as soon as possible.

Personal Vehicle Usage
While we discourage staff from driving students, occasionally situations arise when it becomes necessary. Prior to driving students, a background check needs to be obtained to assess the driving record. When you have an upcoming situation where you will be driving students, submit a copy of your driver's license to Human Resources, along with a note explaining why and how often you are transporting students. This should be done each school year for continued monitoring.
Dexter Community Schools does not provide health or accident insurance coverage for students. Parents and/or their insurance company must pay for any medical bills incurred for injuries sustained at school, school sponsored events, athletic practices or events, or on school property. The District will not pay medical bills that are not covered by your insurance policy. As a service to students and their families, each school year the District makes available a voluntary student accident insurance plan. The agent is First Agency, Inc., 5071 West H Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49009, (269) 381-6630; First Agency website.
