Policy 8300 - RISK MANAGEMENT

A risk management program shall be implemented to reduce or eliminate risks where possible, to determine which risks the district can afford to assume and to transfer to an insurance company those risks which the district does not wish to assume or cannot economically afford  to  assume. Such a program shall consider the benefits, if any, of joining with other units of local government for joint  purchasing of  insurance,  joint  self-insuring  or  joint  employment  of  a  risk manager. The superintendent shall assign the primary responsibility for the administration and supervision of the risk management program to a single person.

The district shall maintain liability insurance, fidelity bonds, errors and omission insurance, and policies to protect district property. All federal and state laws, rules and regulations will be  followed for the protection and safety of the district and the employees.
