School districts get bills for outstanding claims against failed insurance trust

Share/Save/Bookmark

PADUCAH, Kentucky — Some school districts have started getting bills over the past couple of weeks to help offset insurance claims against the failed Kentucky School Boards Insurance Trust.

The trust announced last year that it would disband due to financial woes and school districts would have to pay off outstanding claims of about $60 million. The trust offered insurance for worker's compensation, property and liability claims.

Johnna DeJarnett, assistant superintendent for McCracken County Public Schools told The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/1tZPoih) that the district has received a bill for $122,032 for worker's comp. Paducah Independent Schools got a bill for $210,834. Neither knows how much it will need to pay for property and liability claims.

Paducah Superintendent Donald Shively says the bill, on top of a state-mandated pay raise for employees, has the district tightening its belt.
