How does a New York Private School Bond work?

A surety bond is a financial guarantee provided by the Surety. There are three parties to every surety bond:

Principal – Private School license applicant

Obligee – People of the State of New York

Surety – Surety bond provider

The Principal is the party who will fulfill all the bonded obligations. The Surety will extend its credit to the Principal through the issuance of this bond. The Obligee can be any person (e.g. student) who is enrolled at the bonded private school. If the private school violates its contractual obligations, the Obligee can file a claim to recover the amount needed for the reimbursement of the tuition fee. A valid claim will be settled by the Surety. However, the Principal must reimburse the Surety after.
