Student Accident Insurance

We recently renewed our contract with Markel Insurance to provide accident insurance for students.  It is the same program that has been available for students however there are a few administrative changes.  Markel Insurance is asking clients to use the link to their site for enrollment, claims and other features offered by Markel.  The website will be here temporarily and a permanent link on the left hand side of the district menu.  If you have questions concerning enrollment or other features contact Markel Insurance at 877-444-5014 or follow this link:  Markel Insurance
