3.G. Approval of TRUST AIR/AAS Agreement Update
Description:  The AIR/AAS program was developed and voted on by the Trust board when the Trust began. This was, in part, because many districts were already working closely with broker’s they felt comfortable with and the Trust didn’t want districts to sever those relationships. The purpose of the AIR/AAS program was allow these relationships to continue and/or to assign an insurance broker to districts that didn’t already have a broker with the intent that all AIRs would represent their district and keep an eye out for their placement of insurance coverage. AIR stands for “authorized insurance representative”, and this is how the Trust refers to brokers assigned to districts that works externally. The AAS (additional administrative services) has the same duties as the AIR; however, is employed internally by the Trust. The Trust board made it a requirement that active participating Trust member districts employ an AIR or AAS; though they are free to choose whichever they want and if they choose to employ an AIR, they can set the fee, as the AAS fee is non-negotiable and set at 8% (not to exceed $10,000.) The AIR/AAS role is very similar to the member services role (my role to you); the only differences are: ·         The AIR/AAS represents the district to the Trust vs. member services represents the Trust to the district;· The main duty of the AIR/AAS is helping districts fill out the annual exposure summary (this is the document that provides the Trust with all of your exposures, including vehicles and property) vs. member services role to rate the district after the AIR/AAS and the district submit the exposure summary. CAVIAT appointed the Trust’s AAS back in 2007. I’ve attached the agreement that was signed at that time. I’ve also attached the newest agreement again, in case needed. Dave Frandsen is whom represents your district as the AAS at this time.

1. The fee that CAVIAT has been paying and would continue to pay if you stay with the Trust’s AAS is 8% of the annual contribution/not to exceed $10,000. This not to exceed was put in place for the large districts paying large contributions. Your contribution subtotal for the 15/16 year was $14,146 so your AIR fee came to $1,132 this year.

2.The payment is annual and it is added to your overall contribution total when you are invoiced annually for insurance between June and July. You pay the contribution in full and then the Trust takes care of paying the AIRs/AAS directly.

6.B.3) Update regarding Dual Enrollment, Teacher Certification and Central Programs with Coconino Community College
Description:  After our last board meeting I asked Dr. Monica Baker, CTE Dean at CCC, if I was correct that a JTED can work with other CC's, if their local CC cannot provide the DE services/classes.  Here was her reply:

"Yes, those are the agreed upon state guidelines by the presidents of the community colleges. CCC does dual enrollment out of our district for those schools where the local CC does not or cannot do the DE. And, CCC has had other colleges come into our district to provide other programs when we are unable to provide that service. The community college coming into another school’s district must have a letter from that college’s president stating that it is ok to do the program in the district."

And CAVIAT has experienced this, when it came to the IMO program.  CCC did not have it, the president released us to work with NPC.

I have also attached two documents regarding DE and teacher certification.  This was recently handed down by HLC and CCC does not control these requirements.
