Steps to hold a PTA/PTSA event at or on behalf of a Canyons School District School:
  • Decide on event and if a 3rd party is being hired (i.e. carnival company, fundraising company)
  • Have primary insurance issue a Certificate of Liability

  1. If no 3rd party company is hired, then primary will be PTA’s insurance
  2. If 3rd party company is hired, their insurance would be primary
  3. ALL insured entities have to be listed as “additional insured”Certificate of Liability, event date, time, place and the plan for the event would be submitted to Kevin Ray, Canyons Risk Manager, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 801-826-5143. This needs to be submitted in a timely manner, prior to the event, preferably at least a month in advance, but no later than 1 week prior to the event.
    1. Example 1: if Corner Canyon PTSA is hosting a carnival and Fly By Night Carnival Company has been hired to provide rides and bounce houses, then Fly By Night Carnival Company would have their insurance issue a Certificate of Liability. On that certificate would be listed “Additional Insured: Corner Canyon PTSA, Corner Canyon High School, Canyons School District, Utah Office of Risk Management.”
    2. Example 2: If Alta High School PTSA hosts a fun run and no additional 3rd party company is needed, then Alta High School PTSA’s insurance company would issue a Certificate of Liability. On that certificate would be listed, “Additional Insured: Corner Canyon High School, Canyons School District, Utah Office of Risk Management. Also, if required by the city and if the fun run is going off of school property, it may need to list Sandy City.”
  4. Mr. Ray will approve of the event or decline the event and state why.
  5. If declined, the PTSA may fix any issues and resubmit for approval
