Limited Capacity full

Have you ever wondered or worried about how you will handle a school lock-down in the event of an unwelcomed school intruder? While crisis events of this magnitude are certainly scary, schools and personnel who are prepared can help students and colleagues respond and recover. This session will focus on the general process of school response to crisis events with an eye on preparing the beginning teacher, student teacher, and practicum teacher. This session will prepare you with guiding questions to take to your school site to help you locate and become familiar with the school’s crisis response plan and those who will support you in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to pose questions in this moderated panel discussion.
