Risk Management Services administers district-wide programs and processes that help to keep students, employees, and visitors safe.  These programs are intended to provide administrators, supervisors, and employees with a clear and firm understanding of requirements related to federal, state, and local regulatory laws regarding the prevention of injuries, illnesses, and other emergencies that may involve students, employees, and visitors. Our department works closely with employees, students, parents, and community partners in providing educational and work environments that are safe and conducive to all students learning.

Various regulatory requirements mandate that Durham Public Schools establish written health and safety programs which clearly state its’ goals and objectives that support safe and healthful learning and working environments.  The school district emphasizes safety education and training as the primary means of achieving these goals and objectives.  While Risk Management Services is primarily responsible for risk management and health and safety functions within the school district, administrators, supervisors, and employees are considered directly responsible for maintaining full compliance with state, federal, and local regulations, district Board of Education policies, and procedures related to safety and health.

The following risk management programs are to support district efforts in effectively reducing or eliminating risk exposures within several areas of the school district.
