Certificate of Insurance

What is a Certificate of Liability Insurance?

The Chaffey Joint Union High School District requires that your school/district provide us with a "Certificate of Liability Insurance" or "Evidence of Coverage" Certificate in order to attend and participate in the March 14, 2020 IERSO program being held on the campus of Etiwanda High School , 13500 Victoria Ave, Etiwanda, CA 91739.

You, as the coach for your team, will need to immediately request from your district/school/risk management office contact, insurance coverage, in the form of a Certificate of Liability and Additional Covered Party Endorsement, for your team's participation in the IERSO 2020 program. The Certificate of Liability coverage certifies to the Chaffey Joint Union High School District that your district/school is aware of your school’s participation in this event and authorizes your team's attendance in the IERSO program on March 14, 2020 at Etiwanda High School in Etiwanda, CA. The 'Certificate' also allows for all involved to understand that the district or insuring agency will provide liability coverage for each team's participants and district staff who participate in the program.

Insurance Certificate Language: (Certificate of Liability Insurance or Evidence of Coverage Certificate and Additional Covered Party Endorsement)

Certificate Holder:

The Chaffey Joint Union School District, its Trustees & Board Members and the staff members of Etiwanda High School, its officers, agents, employees, and volunteers of each of them. In addition, the Southern California Science Olympiad must be named as an “additional insured”.

If a district has more than one school participating in the upcoming program and the issuing agency allows for this, one certificate for all the participating schools in a district can be issued providing all of those participating are named in the "Certificate of Liability" or "Evidence of Coverage" Certificate that is provided.
