The Ontario school “Risk Management at a Glance” material is intended to provide guidance and direction in the major risk management areas facing school administrators, principals, vice-principals, teachers and all other school staff on a daily basis.

Although this reference material is not intended to replace school board policies and procedures, it is intended to supplement the risk management considerations which should go into making the decisions on the most common day to day school activities. The design of this publication is intended to promote the display of this document in a calendar-like format in every school to facilitate ready “Risk Management at a Glance”. This can be used by every employee who may be called upon to make a decision about the permitting of or the organizing of any activity listed.

For any activities not listed in this material, it is recommended that you contact your board office, or refer to the policies and procedures as stated by your school board.
