Any loss not within the mandatory insurance requirements of this section shall be borne by the district.

(d) In this section,
(1) "code upgrade" means upgrades required by applicable building and fire codes or other law for the occupancy of the school facility;
(2) "flood plain" or "flood-prone area" has the meaning given in 44 C.F.R. 59.1 (Oct. 1, 1996);
