Assistant Principals Webinar: Keeping Students Safe Every Day: How to Prepare for and Respond to School Violence, Natural Disasters, and Other Hazards
Is your school prepared to deal with a crisis, whether it's a hurricane, an earthquake, an explosion at a nearby chemical facility, an active shooter, or one of many other possibilities? Does your school have an up-to-date plan to deal with hazards of all sorts? Do teachers and other staff members know what to do in emergency situations to protect their students and themselves from harm? In this informative virtual conversation, school safety experts Amy Klinger and Amanda Klinger offer significant—and sometimes surprising—statistics on school safety, dispel common misunderstandings, and provide school leaders with information they to create safe environments for learning.
