About Risk Management
The Risk Management Department is dedicated to the effective identification and management of HISD’s exposures to risk. The Risk Management Teams listed below work together to achieve this goal.
Environmental Consulting Services
The Environmental Consulting Services Team investigates environmental concerns as identified by staff, students and the community. This Team also provides the consultation services required by state and federal law in support of the asbestos abatement projects conducted by the HISD Construction and Facility Services Department.
In order to reduce HISD’s exposure to catastrophic losses, the Insurance Team negotiates and manages the district’s property and casualty insurance, striving to obtain the best coverage possible at the lowest cost. They are actively involved in claims administration and manage the district's Self Insurance Recovery Fund (SRF).
The Safety and Emergency Management team has transitioned to the Police Department as of March 6, 2023.
