This is new territory, and there's really no history to go on. Since premium is based on the severity of the risk, chances are it's going to go up.
Of course, the argument to taxpayers who don't want to pay the freight for such an increased premium is, "so, what exactly ARE your kids worth ??".
Tough one to work out. I know down here in TN, some districts are already doing it (some publicly, some quietly). Gotta wonder if the quiet ones have even told their insurance companies.

My typical response was along the lines of "So, what all aspects of YOUR business do you let them run for you?" Guess my delivery of that was pretty good, it worked about 90% of the time.
That tactic isn't going to work nearly as well talking to school administrators though.
