All students participating in a field experience in a K-12 setting must be covered by professional liability insurance.
You must apply for liability insurance prior to your first field experience and reapply every August until completion of the teacher preparation program. Visit www.educationminnesota.org to see details of student benefits. For each year you are a student member, your professional membership once you are a teacher will be discounted.
Other options for professional liability insurance would include:
- Option 2: Professional liability insurance from the Association of American Educators. Visit http://www.aaeteachers.org/insurance.html to see details of student member benefits. Submit a copy of member verification.
- Option 3: If you are covered for professional liability in a school setting from another insurance provider, please provide a copy of insurance card and section of policy indicating your coverage.
