ISM Risk Management Assessment

This 360-degree, customizable risk management assessment service helps you identify potential challenges and liabilities that could significantly impact your school’s reputation and bottom line.

What We Do

ISM offers a customized risk management assessment service that is designed to analyze your school’s areas of potential exposure in four major categories:

  • safety;
  • facilities;
  • liability and legal issues;
  • and human resources/employment practices.

The process is not intended to be an in-depth review of a single topic. Rather, it will function as a high-level analysis of multiple disciplines in order to identify significant concerns.

The ISM Risk Management Assessment service is a 360-degree approach that goes beyond the limited scope of traditional risk assessments, which typically focus on insurance issues. This process examines a wide range of areas that have historically plagued private-independent schools, including safety, breach of contract, discrimination, employment practices, and use of vendors and facilities—all of which can result in lawsuits.

Benefit to You

While no process can anticipate each and every untoward event, the ISM Risk Management Assessment helps you and your fellow school leaders be sufficiently informed about areas of potential liability. This service will prepare you to hold difficult conversations about challenges you face, ask the right questions of yourself and others, and do so at the right time—before an unfortunate event occurs.

The Consultant will provide detailed recommendations about your school’s specific strengths and challenges at the end of the service. These recommendations are framed around ISM Stability Markers, our 15 research-based variables that predict your school’s continued viability and ability to maintain programmatic excellence over time.
