Summer Training Opportunities

Summer is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me or the teachers, counselors and administrators I know, you are ready to jump in and increase your knowledge to help you continue to do great things in your school….along with enjoying a bit of well-deserved time off, of course.

There are so many areas of your job to attend to, and I know that school safety isn’t typically at the top of most educators’ lists. So, I will make this easy for you.

Easy and Inexpensive Training

The easiest way I know of to learn something new is to do so from the comfort of your own home. I want to recommend a couple of training courses you can take online in a very short amount of time.

First, if you haven’t already taken the free course,  Increase Your School’s Safety in 5 Easy Steps, grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea, and take this course! It’s free, and you can get it right here. In less than 15 minutes, you will know how to make your school significantly safer.

Second, for a more extended school safety training that is recommended for all school staff members and subs, spend around 90 minutes on this course – Everyday School Safety. This is the online version of the training I’ve delivered many times in person to schools across the country. I’ve lowered the price significantly to make it accessible to educators. You can get that course right here.

While you’re thinking of school safety, why not download some of the handouts on warning signs of violence and suicide, along with other school safety topics. Nearly all are offered for free, and you can get them at The School Safety Store.

If your summer work includes updating your school’s safety plan, this Template Pack will make your life much easier. It includes over 25 documents and templates for school safety planning and response!

It’s also not too late to schedule a Threat Assessment Training for your team this summer. I have a few dates still open, so give me a call or complete the online contact form if this is something you’d like to do.

As always, I want to thank all of the educators out there for the outstanding work you do.

Have an amazing summer!
