About the Day

Course Descriptions

This training day consists of three 1.5 hour courses. 

Insurance (OPR200)

Insurance coverage can mitigate the risk against a wide variety of factors. Insurance is one very important component of a school's risk management plan. This training session will discuss the coverage of each type of insurnace and the criteria of if/when a school would need coverage, in addition to avoiding common "pit falls" when purchasing insurance. Topics covered include: general liability, property protection, educators professional liability, abuse and molestation coverage, employee dishonesty, forgery and alteration, theft, money and securities, equipment breakdown, directors, officers and trustees and commercial autos and buses.

Contract Management (FN100)

At the conclusion of this session, attendees will know what to look for or include in new contracts, the need to maintain a database or central repository of all existing contract, monitoring and maintaining performance of contracts, contact negotiation tips, when to involve an attorney and dispute resolution. Managing the contracts the charter has entered into can reduce the risk to the charter.  Every charter has many contracts in place,  copier lease, software agreements, maintenance agreements, custodial contracts, employee agreements….the list goes on.  If the contractor developed the contract/agreement, it was not written for the charter’s interest.  Every agreement should have certain clauses for your protection.  Every contract should be managed; involving reviewing, revising, and analyzing contracts. 

Facility Lease Provisions (OPM270)

Many Charters operate in leased facilities.  Was your lease created specifically to benefit your charter?  Is your lease flexible as you grow?  Who should supply the insurance coverage, the property owner or the school? Is your facility in compliance with Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)?  What guidelines must be followed in remodeling of a leased facility?  Where do you find an expert that knows what a school lease must include?  This webinar will answer these questions and more!  This session will assist in your assessment of a current lease, and be a great tool if you are considering entering a lease (short or long term).
