Security for Charter Schools: The Five Layers of School Safety
Our schools should be safe havens for teaching and learning, free of crime and violence. School safety is linked to improved student and school outcomes. In particular, emotional and physical safety in school have been shown to be related to academic performance. Any instance of crime or violence at school not only affects the individuals involved, but also may disrupt the educational process and affect bystanders, the school itself, and the surrounding community, as stated in the 2017 Indicators of School Crime and Safety.
For this important and timely webinar on school safety, we are fortunate and honored to be joined by nationally known expert on emergency preparedness, the President and CEO fo Safeguard Risk Solutions, Gary Sigrist.

Join us and learn the five key layers of safety for your school and students. We’ll cover safety measures, emergency planning, threat assessment, and more!
