Many schools are dealing with issues such as bullying, open carry of guns or weapons, as well as domestic violence. Schools are seen as community centers. Building secretaries, administrators, teachers, and other top personnel all have to deal with these situations. Thankfully, these are not every day occurrences so learning the best practices from experts are necessary to keeping the students safe every day.  Bring your current plan and walk away with updates or a new plan. Administrators and building personnel should be attending this workshop.
