Building relationships to deliver innovative coverage
In 1978, public schools were facing rapidly rising workers’ comp rates and limited coverage alternatives. A few neighboring districts decided the best solution was to pool their risk and self-insure their coverage. Together, they formed SISC. Their venture was so successful, that in 1979 they formed property and liability and health benefit pools.
Eventually, word got out and other districts wanted to join. This kept happening. Today, SISC covers districts all over the state and our combined annual budgets total $2.5 billion dollars. We are now the largest public school pool in the U.S.
We’ve been on the cutting edge of public school insurance solutions for 40 years. And, led by a former school district superintendent, our legacy of “schools helping schools” lives on.
