Liability Insurance
Teacher education students are required to obtain Tort Liability Insurance prior to any field experience.
This insurance may assist with expenses related to civil suits brought against education students for acts or omissions that occur at a school. No amount of vigilance or professionalism can prevent some accidents. Also, a suit that incurs expenses can be brought against a person even if it is groundless. For these reasons, education students are required to obtain Tort Liability Insurance. Tort Liability insurance is required for field experiences in any class. Be advised that you will need to provide proof of coverage/membership each semester. Proof of coverage is documented when applying for field experiences. For a small fee, you must obtain coverage by joining one of the following student organizations: Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) or Student Professional Association of Georgia Educators (SPAGE)
