Wednesday, February 19, 2014 4:30 PM–5:20 PM


It happened to us. This session provides information about the steps our school and community took to respond and recover from a traumatic school crisis. We will describe 6 critical lessons we learned responding to an event that resulted in deaths and injuries to many students. Participants will learn specific crisis planning and intervention strategies that combine best practice information from recent literature and the PREPaRE curriculum, with a real life situation.
