School District R-32-J has selected the Student Insurance Plan from K&K Insurance Group to make reliable coverage available to parents.  If you don't have other insurance, this plan may be a resource to consider.  Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive "gaps" caused by deductible and co-pays.  Coverage may be purchased at any time during the school year by visiting www.studentinsurance-kk.com
