Legal Issues Affecting School Health

District and Individual Liability

Every lawsuit brings in the media. When is a school possibly liable, and when is it just a nuisance suit? When do employees have to be worried about being liable…better yet, when do I have to worry about being liable? What will my insurance cover, and what may have to come out of my pocket? This session will discuss all the potential areas of liability, and provide you with methods for avoiding liability.


  • Child abuse reporting
  • In Loco parentis
  • Professional immunity
  • Sexual harassment and deliberate indifference
  • Sports and other extracurricular vulnerability
  • Motor vehicular liability
  • State and Federal immunities

Note: This same presentation can be adjusted for any or all employee groups within the district.

Audience: Superintendents, Human Resource Directors, Principals, Assistant Principals, and all other School Personnel.
