John Tuttle, a member of the Kellyville Public Schools Board of Education since 1993, will be installed as president of the National School Boards Association at the organization’s annual conference on Saturday in Nashville.
The Oklahoma State School Boards Association endorses the Oklahoma Schools Risk Management Trust (OSRMT). As an alternative to commercial insurance, OSRMT allows member public schools to come together and jointly self-insure against the property and casualty exposures they face today. OSRMT is governed by public school officials in Oklahoma.
OSRMT was established to help combat the high cost of traditional property/casualty insurance. Today the OSRMT provides competitively priced property/casualty coverage to school districts across the state and delivers service that is second to none.
