MPS requires many of our external partners and organizations to obtain general liability insurance. This is because having insurance means that a partner or outside organization is adequately protected in the case of any accidents or negligence that may occur.
Minneapolis Public Schools requires commercial general liability insurance if:
- A Community Partner will be working with students unsupervised*
- A non-profit organization wants to send flyers home with students.
* If an individual or organization is fully supervised while working with students (MPS staff member is present for the entire length of programing or services), then a waiver of insurance can be signed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the this waiver.
Unsupervised Access to Students and Flyer Distribution(No MPS staff present during programming or services)
*Professional or business liability insurance will not be accepted.
