Message From the CEO


Thanks for stopping by. If you don’t know us yet, we are a group of talented individuals with industry and school experience who have a passion for going above and beyond to help our schools maintain healthy and safe environments for students and staff. It is because of our amazing employees and our ongoing dedication to our members that school districts choose to work with us year after year.

At California Schools JPA, we have pioneered programs and services combined with solution- oriented products to better serve the members of our pool. Our staff are here to ensure exceptional member service and continued presence at the member site level where we may be needed most. It is our goal to provide robust coverage, exceptional service and expert guidance so that our members know they are well taken care of. We stand dedicated to providing quality risk management and employee benefit services as well as trainings and strategic guidance from legislative matters to funding mechanisms and contribution strategies.

We love being all inclusive. Our programs, such as employee assistance and health advocacy, are provided at no cost to our CSEBA employee benefits members enrolled in medical. Our CSRM risk management members have access to deadly weapons, terrorism and cyber/data breach coverage included in the rates for the associated program. Plus, regardless of which risk sharing pool you choose, school district and community colleges will have access to onsite, online, facilitated, and on-demand trainings on a variety of topics year-round.

If you already know us, we want our website to be the best place to go for all of your needs, so watch for continued updates, improvements to our calendar, program access, services, training, Clearinghouse products at discounted rates, resources, and video content. As we plan for the Fall, be sure to mark your calendars now for our big upcoming events that include our 13th Annual fundraising Golf Tournament, October 21, 2019 in Palm Springs, our CSRM risk management Annual Member Forum, October 22-23, 2019 also in Palm Springs, and our CSEBA employee benefits Annual Member Summit, December 9-10, 2019 to be held in Temecula.

On behalf of myself and your entire leadership team, Melissa, Ellen, Val, Daniel, and Javier, we sincerely thank you, our member K12 and community college districts, for your continued participation, engagement, and trust in what we do. And for those who don’t know us yet, we would love to welcome you into our community and invite you to any of our upcoming events to learn more.
