To ensure that injured students receive needed health care services, the Board of Trustees may make medical and/or hospital service available to district students through nonprofit membership corporations and/or group, blanket or individual policies from an authorized insurer or a district self-insurance program.

The Superintendent or designee shall provide or make available:

1. Medical or hospital service or insurance protection against injuries to students while participating in any excursion or field trip under the jurisdiction of, or sponsored by or controlled by, the district. (Education Code 35331)

The costs of the medical or hospital service or insurance protection for such students may be paid by either the student, the student's parent/guardian, or booster organization. (Education Code 35331)

(cf. 3260 - Fees and Charges)

(cf. 6153 - School-Sponsored Trips)

2. Insurance protection for medical and hospital expenses resulting from accidental bodily injury to each member of a school athletic team as defined in law and administrative regulation. (Education Code 32221)

The costs of insurance protection for athletic team members shall be paid by the student, the student's parent/guardian, or booster organization on behalf of the individual team members or students covered by the insurance. If a parent/guardian of an athletic team member is financially unable to pay the costs of insurance protection, the costs shall be paid by the student body organization. (Education Code 32221)

(cf. 3452 - Student Activity Funds)

The insurance shall not be required of athletic team members who have insurance or a reasonable equivalent of health benefits provided through other means, including but not limited to purchase by the student or his/her parent/guardian. (Education Code 32221)

(cf. 6145 - Extracurricular and Cocurricular Activities)
