Risk Management

Our Goal:

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.

Our Mission:

To protect the assets of the Lake County School Board, both human and financial.  This is accomplished through a process of risk identification, risk assessment, and implementation of appropriate control measures.  Additional objectives of the process include avoiding, minimizing, or transferring risk through safety and loss control processes, wellness initiatives, and various insurance products.
