Certificate of Insurance

What is a Certificate of Liability Insurance?

The Riverside Unified School District requires that your school/district provide us with a "Certificate of Liability Insurance" or "Evidence of Coverage" Certificate in order to attend and participate in the March 2, 2019 IERSO program being held on the campus of Ramona High School in Riverside, CA.

You, as the coach for your team, will need to immediately request from your district/school/risk management office contact, insurance coverage, in the form of a Certificate of Liability, for your team's participation in the IERSO 2018 program. The Certificate of Liability coverage certifies to the Riverside Unified School District that your district/school is aware of your school’s participation in this event and authorizes your team's attendance in the IERSO program on March 2, 2019 at Ramona High School in Riverside, CA. The 'Certificate' also allows for all involved to understand that the district or insuring agency will provide liability coverage for each team's participants and district staff who participate in the program.

Insurance Certificate Language: (Certificate of Liability Insurance or Evidence of Coverage Certificate)

Certificate Holder:

The Riverside Unified School District, its Trustees & Board Members and the staff members of Ramona High School, its officers, agents, employees, and volunteers of each of them. In addition, the Southern California Science Olympiad must be named as an “additional insured”.

If a district has more than one school participating in the upcoming program and the issuing agency allows for this, one certificate for all the participating schools in a district can be issued providing all of those participating are named in the "Certificate of Liability" or "Evidence of Coverage" Certificate that is provided. Should your Risk Management Office or Insurance Agent have questions regarding the requested information, please contact, John Preston, RUSD Director of Risk Management by email at or by phone at (951) 788-7135 extension 80601.
