The School Site Safety Assessments course will provide participants with an overview of the importance of evaluating and auditing school facilities from a school safety perspective. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the purpose and procedures of conducting school site safety assessments as well as toolkits they can utilize to evaluate their campus safety needs. This training will focus on use of the “Site Assess” app developed by the U.S. Department of Education. The app is practical, easy to use and contains multiple checkpoints for personnel to use in order to evaluate campus facilities, policies and procedures. A portion of this class will include an actual walk through and physical evaluation of a school site so as to provide participants with hands-on experience. Participants will also gain valuable resources to use in the setting up of safety and security monitoring and reporting for their district as well as gain knowledge on how to select campus and district emergency response teams and campus evaluation teams.
