Eligibility

To join PACE, you must be a current member of the Oregon School Boards Association (OSBA) and then hire an insurance agent to obtain PACE Coverage.

Public K-12 districts and education service districts pay annual dues to OSBA based on their December 31 ADMr figures from the Oregon Department of Education.

Community college dues are paid to OSBA by the Oregon Community Colleges Association.

Charter schools pay annual dues to OSBA based on their December 31 ADMr figures from the Oregon Department of Education. Because charter schools are legally separate organizations from their sponsoring school district, charter school membership in OSBA is separate from the sponsoring school district.

Process

  1. Establish membership in the OSBA.
  2. Find an agent.  PACE does not recommend agents but a list of current agents can be provided upon request. Please contact the underwriting department at underwriting@sdao.com for further information.
