Risk Management conducts activities to help manage the impact of loss or other
uncertainty to the organization. Risk Management is responsible for property and
casualty insurance programs for the school system. Staff adjusters respond to liability
claims from members of the public and manage workers' compensation claims, working
closely with injured employees from the time of injury until resolution. Risk
Management partners with staff in schools and other departments to answer insurance
questions, investigate accidents and make safety recommendations to create the safest
possible learning and working environment for our students and staff.
Workers' Compensation is a program created by state law that provides medical, income, and other benefits to employees due to injury, illness or death resulting from a compensable work-related claim covered by the law. If you have been injured while performing your duties as an employee of Gwinnett County Public Schools, you should report the injury as soon as possible. Risk Management staff will review the circumstances of the injury and, if benefits are appropriate under the law, assist you with obtaining necessary medical treatment and other benefits to which you may be entitled.

Accidents can occur anywhere, and school is no exception. To assist families with medical expenses caused by an accidental injury at school, we have arranged for an optional Student Accident Insurance plan, available for all students. Parents may elect to purchase this coverage, at reasonable rates, through our vendor/partner. For more information about Student Accident Insurance, click here.
