Safety and School Emergency Professional Learning Network

Schools can never be completely prepared for emergencies, but through a series of interactive case study reviews, district and school leaders can strengthen their current safety and emergency plans and responses, while building capacity for a comprehensive response. Please join our ESC of the Western Reserve Safety and School Emergency Network as we explore real and simulated emergency cases, interact and share ideas and support with local school leaders and community first responders, and identify safety concerns and needs in individual districts.
