Manatee County School District
Student Accident Insurance
The Manatee Public School Board is very interested in providing a safe environment for all students attending school and during school activities. However, accidents may occur at school or away from school. Accidents that happen at school are generally NOT the fault of the school nor are such accidents the responsibility of the district to provide or pay for medical treatment or insurance.
You are encouraged to provide medical health insurance to pay medical expenses for student injuries or illnesses. As a public service the Manatee School District has purchased a supplemental student accident insurance policy to provide basic accident coverage for all students while at school or when they are participating in activities that are exclusively sponsored, scheduled, funded and directly supervised by the Manatee County School Board during the current 2021-2022 school term. This school time policy coverage ends on the last day of school in May 2022. This policy will not pay for 100% of all medical expenses, and is NOT “Primary Insurance”. The basic coverage is in effect only during the regular school day for pre-approved activities directly supervised by Manatee District employees.
