Any type of care needed for up to 48 hours, all included!
Time to connect with families while students are cared for off-campus by adult chaperones
It's time for a change! Why not have one reliable, single point of contact for ALL students who need it?
Schools have been left responsible to manage the additional liability of caring for students off-campus when their Emergency Contacts cannot. Especially during a health crisis!
These are the common trends we've seen this past academic year:
How (GAP) works:
A (GAP) allows the School to directly support (and pay for) services that are required to provide care for students off-campus for an extended period of time, or until they return. The school will be invoiced directly for any services provided during the 48 hour period. Cost includes an "Emergency Contact" for all students covered under a (GAP).
Schools with a (GAP) can utilize SHA as the designated Emergency Contact resource for the school (or selected group) when off-campus support is required. If a student does not have a friend or relative to pick them up and provide the needed care, the school can contact SHA to facilitate any service that may be needed in the event of an emergency, or if that student is required to be off campus for any reason. After being contacted, we will work directly with each student's family to establish a "Guardianship Contract" before any care is provided. The School will no longer be responsible for any care for the student from that point on.
When a student needs to be QUARANTINED, the following services are activated:
Plan pricing is based on total # students, and the length of the coverage period.
A quick conversation is usually best to determine pricing based on your school's unique situation. However, we're happy to send you a quote if you can provide us with some basic information about your school!

A basic financial-level agreement is all that is required to complete payment and lay out terms of the coverage being provided, either (GAP) or Emergency Contact Service. There is no formal vendor contract, since all services are provided directly to the student through a "Guardianship Agreement" established with the family when services are needed.
"Group Assurance Plan" cost is significantly less per-student than if families were to choose an "Individual Membership" or enrolling during an emergency situation. All services listed above are billed separately, and only as needed. You may choose to have any or all of these services billed directly to the school, or to the families of each student who utilizes them as part of the school's GAP program.
Emergency Contact Services are based on the # of students covered during the year, and the cost does not include any off-campus services (transportation, hotel, host family stay etc.). Those services can be invoiced to the school (as part of GAP) or families can enroll their student in a new Membership based on their individual needs and care required.
In order to provide any of the above services to covered students, each parent will be required to complete the Membership Packet, which allows SHA and its partners to provide the above listed services and administer any direct care (as required) for the student's health and wellbeing.
*This information is only required after the school notifies SHA that the student will need to enter into our care and be moved off campus. There is no pre-enrollment paperwork, or any student information required as part of the GAP program.
