Gather Guard

ASCIP Tenant User Liability Program for Use of Facility

ASCIP tenant user liability program is through GatherGuard Event Insurance, a master general liability policy for facilities covering special events.  GatherGuard is an open reporting General Liability Policy written in the name of the District and users of the district facilities.  The Master Policy is delivered to your District, which is automatically added as Additional Insured at no cost.

The GatherGuard Program offers the following Advantages:

  • The ability for the District to manage its liability risk. The District will have prior knowledge of the coverage terms and conditions without depending on the user
  • GatherGuard Program is a promotional tool for the Districts to attract users by having insurance readily available
  • The user (tenant) is relieved of the responsibility of obtaining insurance acceptable to the District
  • The cost is low to the tenant user, eliminating high minimum premium requirements.
  • No Deductible
  • Host Liquor is included
  • Copy of proof of coverage automatically send to venue-designated personnel
  • Many types of events are eligible

This is NOT a Public Entity Insurance Program and will not replace or participate with the general insurance program of any Public Entity, District or other Facility Owner/Operator. The District must still carry their own coverage.

ASCIP 911 Emergency Response Coverage

The ASCIP 911 Emergency Response Coverage is in excess over any other insurance available to the student, parent/guardian, the district or other party.

911 Coverage Limits:

  • $2,500 / occurrence
  • No aggregate (call 911 as often as needed)
  • No deductible (no cost to the member district)

How long does a person/party have to file a claim against the school/district?

Claims made against public entities (including school districts) are governed by the California Government Code Section-Section 3. A claim relating to a cause of action for death or injury to person(s) or damage to personal property shall be presented not later than six months after the accrual of the cause of action. A claim relating to any other cause of action shall be presented no later than one year after the accrual of the cause of action. Note: there are exceptions for the types of claims being made. If you have a question regarding any claim, please contact ASCIP.

Reporting Significant or Critical Incidents

For incidents that involve a fatality, hospitalization of a third party or have the potential to incur a large monetary loss, members must notify ASCIP immediately – don’t wait for the injured party to file a claim!

Also, members must report right away, or as soon as the member becomes aware of all claims, suits, incidents, or allegations related to childhood sexual assault. This includes:

  1. Arrest or criminal complaint;
  2. Investigation by the member, or any governmental agency;
  3. Verbal or written disciplinary action taken;
  4. Any matter reported to, or should have been reported to, California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

You should always report a significant incident as soon as possible, even if you have little information about the facts surrounding the incident. In the case of a significant vehicle accident, always attempt to contact the local law enforcement agency as well.
