Extracurricular activities such as domestic and international trips, community service projects, independent study projects, and athletics are valued elements of the school experience. However, by their very nature, extracurricular activities can create additional liability exposure for any school. Discuss developing an effective risk management plan to limit liability exposure in extracurricular activities. An effective risk management plan involves more than just a permission form—it looks more broadly at the program as a whole to ensure the school is doing everything practicable to protect the safety and security of the students entrusted to its care.
