Fire, Earth and Wind: Managing Risk in Today's Schools Part 2--The Environment
Weeks, Richard
School Business Affairs, v76 n6 p26-27 Jul-Aug 2010
Because school business officials are pushed to make difficult decisions quickly when it comes to risk management, they should be aware of the issues associated with environmental safety. School business officials are integral members of the teams that handle crises--big and small--in the school district. A crisis may be as straightforward as the possibility of leeched arsenic all over the playground or polychlorinated biphenyls in the water from the playground's drinking fountain in the Liberty School District or it could be as complex as the sprawling disaster of Hurricane Katrina. This article presents the different teams that school business officials can expect to work with and be a part of when addressing environmental risks. By working with the entire district team, being up to date on legislation, and being proactive, school business officials can manage environmental risk before it turns up in the drinking water or on the playground.
