Verification of enrollment can now be completed online each year. Feel free to watch a helpful video to help you through the process.

Student Accident Insurance

Beaverton School District insurance does not cover student injuries due to accidents at school or during school-sponsored activities, such as field trips. At the beginning of each school year, the District provides parents with information on a voluntary accident insurance program. Parents should consider this insurance option if their student is not covered by a family health or accident insurance plan.


Insurance coverage is required for all students participating in interscholastic sports. Students who cannot show proof of accident or health coverage, must purchase insurance from Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co. If participating in tackle football, Interscholastic Tackle Football Accident Plan (grades 9-12) is required. All other interscholastic sports participants may purchase either the Student Accident & Sickness Plan or Full-Time 24/7 Accident Plan.


Optional accident insurance and sports coverage is obtained by parents directly from Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc.

  • Coverage Information and Application - English

  • Coverage Information and Application - Spanish


If you have purchased Student Accident & Health Insurance and need to file a claim, contact Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc. at (800) 827-4695.
