The social, emotional, and physical threats facings schools and students represent a constantly growing and changing concern for district and building-level leaders. As students and staff begin returning to buildings in full-time status, it is critical that educational leaders are equipped with the skills, knowledge, and plans to respond to threats in any form. As KASB continues to lean into its mission to Lead, Serve, and Advocate with our members we are dedicated to bringing you access to cutting-edge threat assessment and management systems.
Our staff has been certified by Navigate360 to bring impactful training to our Kansas district leadership teams. We will work with your team on a two to three-part series. It begins with an online training program that is then paired with an in-person training session led by our KASB Staff. The optional third step brings an opportunity for your staff to become the trainers for your district.
If you are interested and ready to join our program please contact, Lauren Lynch who can provide more details for your team.
