IMPORTANT NOTE: This workshop is part of the PREPaRE curriculum third edition pilot testing. Participants will receive full credit for being trained in the third edition of this workshop. They will receive draft materials as part of the workshop itself and then access to the official materials once they are finalized. Third Edition Training of Trainer workshops will be available starting fall 2019. Districts will begin to be able to request and schedule third edition core workshops starting late fall 2019. Please also note that districts and trainers currently using the second edition curriculum will be able to continue doing so until June 2020, giving them time to upgrade to the third edition. There will be an online process for second edition trainers to upgrade to the third edition starting fall 2019.
Participants will learn how to establish and sustain comprehensive school safety efforts that attend to both physical and psychological safety. The workshop addresses critical components needed to develop, exercise, and evaluate safety and crisis teams and plans and conduct building vulnerability assessments. The model also integrates school personnel and community provider roles in providing school-based crisis preparedness and response activities. Additional topics addressed also include media/social media, communication, reunification, students with special needs, culture, and memorials. After this workshop, participants will be better prepared to improve their school’s climate, student resilience, and crisis response capabilities of school personnel. With updated research and strategies, this workshop makes a clear connection between ongoing crisis prevention, mitigation, protection, and response.

Convention session locations are only viewable for convention attendees. Locations will be available/visible Monday, February, 25 2019.
