CharterSAFE provides group self-insurance and risk management services designed specifically for California’s charter schools. In the beginning, individual charter schools were forced to buy overpriced and sometimes deficient insurance coverage. To remedy this situation, 63 schools came together in 2004 to form a Joint Powers Authority risk pool, ensuring the availability of affordable and superior coverage. Now in its 9th year, the pool protects 500+ charter locations. To celebrate its success, the pool is adopting a new brand that more clearly describes its purpose: CharterSAFE.
