Examples of School District Negligence

Below is a list of examples of school district negligence:
- Inadequate staffing for safety and security
- Poor maintenance of buildings, playground equipment, grounds, and vehicles
- Failure to meet fire safety codes
- Inadequate training of teachers or staff
- Negligent hiring
- Failure to address security issues or complaints about safety, behavior, or actions
