Schools Insurance
Program for Employees

A Workers' Compensation Joint Powers Authority for the Public Schools of San Luis Obispo County

The joint powers authority, originally called the Self Insurance Program for Employees (SIPE), was established in 1977 to provide the services necessary and appropriate for the development, operation, and maintenance of a self-insurance program for workers' compensation claims. A Board of Directors was created consisting of a representative from each member school district. The SIPE Board of Directors established Risk Management Committee to conduct research and develop safety and loss control programs with the overall goal of providing safety and loss control services to SIPE member school districts.
