New Jersey Revised Statutes § 18a:18b-3 - School Board Insurance Group

18A:18B-3. School board insurance group
a. Any two or more boards of education may form and become members of a school board insurance group. A board of education may take this action by resolution of the board. Through membership in a school board insurance group, a board of education may participate in any joint self-insurance fund or funds, risk management programs or related services offered or provided by the group. The group shall have the power to establish a fund or funds for coverages authorized in section 2 of this act and to jointly purchase insurance or coverages under a master policy or contract of insurance for participating members. The group shall have the power to take other actions necessary to developing, administering, and providing risk management programs, joint self-insurance funds, joint insurance purchases, and related services.

b. The bylaws of the school board insurance group shall provide that any board of education may join the group, provided it agrees to comply with the standards for membership, including risk management programs, which shall be established by the group, and may be a member as long as it complies with the standards for membership.

c. A school board insurance group may sue or be sued and shall appoint a natural person residing in this State or a corporation authorized to do business in this State as its agent for service of process. The group shall notify the commissioner of the appointment.

d. A school board insurance group is not an insurance company or an insurer under the laws of this State and the development, administration or provision by a group of joint self-insurance fund or funds, risk management programs and related services does not constitute the transaction of insurance nor doing an insurance business. A group shall not be subject to the provisions of Title 17, Subtitle 3, Insurance, of the Revised Statutes.
