Our school district contracts the use of privately owned buses and their drivers. Will our insurance cover the operation of these buses?

Yes. These buses will be covered under the TNRMT program provided they are listed on the schedule of vehicles and arrangements have been made through contractual assumption of liability. IMPORTANT: The owner/driver of the school bus will be covered only if the school district has agreed in writing and by contract to cover such liability and we have been duly informed.

Our school district is planning on renting a van to take students and faculty to an event out of town. Does our insurance cover this van?

Yes. The TNRMT program covers liability created by an accident involving this van. IMPORTANT: However, the van you rent must be one that is designed to carry a maximum of 10 persons (including the driver). Larger capacity vans do not meet federal motor vehicle safety standards for any kind of pupil transportation to or from school or school-related activities.
