Why do I need this bond?
Alabama private school bonds are put in place to ensure that students don’t suffer financial loss if the school ceases to operate for any reason. Specifically, these bonds guarantee that principals (private schools) conduct operations in accordance with sections 16-46-1 through 10 of the Alabama Code.
If the school fails to conduct ethical and lawful business, the bond protects students from financial loss up to the full penal sum of the bond ($20,000 for non-degree-granting schools, and $50,000 for degree-granting schools). The principal must reimburse the surety for all sums paid out.
