Full report in PDF format

Consistent with OPPAGA’s recommendations, the 2006 Legislature discontinued the Educators Professional Liability Insurance Program, avoiding the need to appropriate approximately $1.4 million per year. Florida’s public school educators and administrators continue to be protected from professional liability claims by Florida’s sovereign immunity law and school district insurance programs.
