Our finance article this month is over everyone’s favorite necessary evil:. OPSRC does not endorse one insurance carrier over another; we are simply not in the insurance business. We don't have any kind of financial arrangement with any insurance group, investment group associated with the insurance business, sponsorship from an inter-local insurance group, and we don't intend to build such a relationship. We are neutral in this area of school finance by design.
We have members that belong to both inter-local insurance groups OSMRT and OSIG for the purposes of vehicle, building, liability and board insurance. We will not recommend one over the other, but we do believe strongly that close attention to all costs attached to a policy, including sponsorship costs, the net membership and the net available assets should be examined and is part of the due diligence of any purchase of this importance. To accomplish your due diligence prior to recommending an insurance purchase to your board, it would be a good idea to research the actual financials of the group, which can be found on the
