Public or private, K-12, or secondary education, schools face unique challenges when devising insurance and risk management plans. They hold a position of trust, often teaching difficult skills in potentially dangerous environments to people who need to master them to take up the careers that make society function. K-12 institutions especially have to balance student safety and a duty of care against the potential risks of given activities for each age and experience level they instruct. It’s no wonder that the global COVID-19 pandemic is upending those plans for so many districts when you think of things that way.
