The Goal of the Lake County Schools Risk Management Department is to provide great customer service to everyone we serve - whether it is meeting with the public, business partners, or our over 6,000 employees. Our service should be exemplary.
To protect the assets of the Lake County School Board, both human and financial.

Accident Insurance for Students
In an effort to provide a safe educational environment for all students and student athletes, the School Board of Lake County has purchased excess casualty insurance for all students. This product provides secondary coverage (in excess of personal health insurance plans) designed to offset out of pocket costs in the event of an injury. This coverage is in effect during school time and all school activities (with the exception of Football).
The student accident insurance may be voluntarily upgraded to include 24-hour coverage (including non-school related activities) and/or Football.
Building Code Compliance is responsible for the plan reviews, permit issuance for construction, and maintenance regardless of size and cost of projects and inspections to determine compliance with the Florida Building Codes, Florida Fire Preventive Codes, State Requirements for Educational Facilities (SREF), Florida Statutes, and Florida Administrative Codes pertaining to construction of all LCS educational and ancillary facilities.
We believe it is important to be well informed, especially with something as important as your healthcare and are pleased to offer you beneficial health insurance plans and supplemental insurance products.
Reservations must be made a minimum of 5 days in advance of the requested event. Payment and Insurance must be submitted no later than 5 days prior to your approved event date. Submit all payments and proof of insurance through Facilitron.
