    New York Schools Insurance Reciprocal

    When NYSIR was formed in 1989, public schools countrywide suffered greatly because of an insurance crisis. Some New York Districts were denied coverage completely, while most experienced premiums that skyrocketed, doubling or reaching even higher levels. With that crisis in mind, NYSIR’s founding members felt this new company should:

    • Provide pricing stability
    • Build back lost coverage
    • Provide a safe environment for children, staff and the community
    • Encourage subscriber input
    • Fight false, fraudulent and frivolous claims

    After more than 30 years of faithfully living up to our founding principles, NYSIR is the premier insurer of public schools in New York State.
