2022 Top Risks Report: Insights for Independent K-12 Schools
About the Report
Each year, United Educators (UE) members share their independent K-12 school’s most pressing risks in the Top Risk Survey. This year’s survey reveals the self-reported top risks across the UE K-12 membership and notes changes over the past few years. Members also commented on the impact of employee retention and hiring on their ability to manage risk. Use this report to compare your school’s risks against the UE membership.
UE provides liability insurance and risk management services to about 1,600 members representing K-12 schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States. Learn more about our coverage for Independent Schools.
