The Northshore School District is exposed to various risks of accidental loss, which may or may not be insured. The purpose of this program is to identify and evaluate these risks and create an environment that will enhance the well-being of our students, employees and others; protect property from damage; reduce costs; and maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.
It is the district's intention to keep the cost of risk to a reasonable minimum. This includes insurance premiums, retained loss expenses, risk control expenses and administrative charges. Wherever possible and prudent, risks will be minimized or eliminated.
The Risk Management Department is responsible for:
- Liability and property claims
- Loss control
- Reviewing Injury Reports for Students and Visitors (contact HR for employee injuries)
- Guidance/implementing risk management processes for activities and field trips
- Vetting higher risk activities
