Training Overview Description

School safety is a critical priority for state and local education leaders as they move to shape policies and procedures that protect their students, teachers, and communities. In this webinar, you'll hear about the steps that state and local leaders are taking to prevent school violence through the implementation of threat assessment models and through efforts to improve school climate. School safety experts will discuss the evidence base behind these promising approaches, and what school administrators and leaders can do to implement these evidence-based strategies systemwide to prevent school tragedies and incidents of violence.
