**IMPORTANT NOTE**: There are special instructions for reporting automobile claims. Automobile Claims are to be reported to SPP and/or ICBC via email. Please refer to the Automobile Claims Reporting section below for more details.
Schools Protection Program Automobile Insurance Amendments
Effective July 1, 2016, the SPP Property Agreement was amended to include collision and comprehensive coverage for all school district licensed vehicles whether owned or leased, subject to a $1,000 deductible. Effective May 1, 2021, the SPP Property Agreement was also amended to include Hit and Run physical damage coverage.
SPP continues to offer excess automobile liability coverage over and above ICBC’s primary coverage under the Liability Coverage Agreement.
SPP has made a Memorandum available which provides proof of loss payee status in favour of lessors when required by contract. Also included is confirmation that the district carries excess automobile liability, collision and comprehensive coverage for vehicles leased and licensed in the name of the school district.
