Some New Jersey schools remained closed for up to two weeks due to damages caused by Superstorm Sandy. The storm’s fierce winds brought down power lines and trees, damaged structures, flooded streets, and left communities without power.
Now, as some storm-damaged schools have reopened, the New Jersey School Board Association has been able to secure some donors to help provide supplies and equipment to the New Jersey schools damaged by Superstorm Sandy. However, some New Jersey schools are still dealing with other difficulties during Sandy’s aftermath including:
- Flood damage
- Power outages
- Relocating displaced students
- Transportation difficulties
- Adjusting the school calendar to make up lost time
- Gaps in communication with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
While dealing with the above list of concerns can be overwhelming, it is important that school districts in New Jersey not rush into accepting any settlement that comes their way. When working with insurance companies to recover property damage losses, it is important to make sure schools are aware of their insurance policy benefits, otherwise schools may miss out on financial compensation to which they are due according to their policies.
