Proactive measures in school safety planning, training, and response are the most effective method to address today’s level of threat to safe school culture and climate. Formation of a collaborative team in schools is the recommended best practice from the U.S. Department of Education as a means to ensure compliance with school emergency management planning and training programs. In order for a team to be effective, they must receive training. Attendees to this workshop will leave with valuable take-ways they can use to shape and move forwards with safety and emergency management programs in their schools.
