Distance Learning Covid Crisis Response

This 90-minute course adapts traditional school crisis response team training so crisis responders can be effective during distance learning.

Who It's For

This crisis response course is useful for school staff who support students through Covid-19 challenges and deaths.

While all who take this course will benefit, it is most effective when an Administrator, Counselor and Teacher from a single building take it together.

Course content takes the foundation of traditional crisis response teamwork in schools into the distance learning environment.
