The Office of Risk Management (ORM) is responsible for addressing issues that put either our students, employees or the assets of the School District of Philadelphia at risk. ORM is dedicated to developing a culture of safety that ultimately promotes a safe learning, working environment for all students and employees. Our mission is to ensure the continuity of education by preventing events that could interrupt or denigrate the quality of education that the School District of Philadelphia and the public at-large have committed to provide to our students.

We strive to be in the vanguard in the continuing process to identify, analyze, evaluate, treat loss exposures, monitor risk control and financial resources to mitigate the adverse effects of loss.
