Last year’s tragedy in Parkland, FL, as well as the dramatic rise in violent incidents and threats that followed it, has once again thrust school safety into the national spotlight. It’s time for a common sense, education-centered discussion on how to prevent and respond to the many different safety concerns facing schools.
This edWebinar will focus on the educators, the “first” first responders, to provide guidance and strategies for an all-hazards approach to school safety that is by educators, for educators. We will explore a holistic approach to school safety that also addresses socio-emotional safety and its impact on physical safety. Dr. Amy Klinger and Amanda Klinger of The Educator’s School Safety Network will examine research-based best practices and protocols that can be implemented in your classroom or school.
This session will be of particular benefit to K-12 educators and administrators. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
