All Staff Preparedness
The All Staff Preparedness video series includes 25 videos on topics most critical for responding to the most common kinds of crises schools face.
These 5-minute videos are designed to slip easily into existing staff or departmental meetings so you don’t have to set aside precious professional development days to keep your staff at high levels of readiness.
Staff will have peace of mind and teachers will know how to prevent small crisis from cascading into larger ones.
Staff will be able to collect practical guidelines for a variety of incidents that may occur in the classroom, the school, or the community at large.
Each video is sharply targeted on one particular topic, so each session is laser-focused.
Students gain trust as teachers feel greater comfort being emotionally available and students’ needs are met.
No one will have to wonder, “What if…” because they know there’s already a clear plan of action ready to go when needed.
Each video has a handout that outlines the basic principles of each topic, and often include suggested scripts for staff to use or actions to take.
Become the Experts
You’ll work together after each video and develop the plan that is best for your school and staff. Your school will know how to manage any crisis that comes your way.
Learn by Doing
Each video comes with small group activities to practice the principles presented.
Your staff won’t just sit and watch instructional videos. Each and every video lesson allows staff to work together to practice what they’ve learned in a very practical, hands-on fashion.
Build Personalized Guidelines
While each and every lesson is taught based on 40 years of experience, your school is unique.
Through handouts and activities, your staff will build a variety of crisis guidelines that meet the specific needs of your building.
When you have a specific, workable plan in place, you can move forward with confidence.
Knowing you can handle whatever comes your way lifts a heavy burden off everyone’s shoulders. By the end of this course, your staff will have identified strengths, assigned roles, and mapped out a working plan.
Every year we focus on a different area to further develop or revisit as a part of our Safe Schools preparation using these resources.
The set up of the materials allows you flexibility in delivering this important professional development. The videos and activities can be embedded into team meetings or staff meetings and can be used in a variety of settings.
