New School Safety Training and Information
Date PostedFebruary 25, 2020
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has also unveiled its school safety resource center. This federal school safety clearinghouse is designed to be a one-stop-shop of resources for K-12 school board members, administrators, teachers, parents, and law enforcement to use to prepare for and address various threats related to safety, security, and support in schools.
A free one-day school safety event is also being offered in the north Chicago suburbs. A list of school safety experts from the Illinois State Police, FBI, municipal and county police departments, certified security specialists, and digital threat entities will educate and inform school board members and administrators. The event is scheduled for Thursday, April 16, at the White Eagle Events & Convention Center in Niles, Illinois. Details and registration information can be found here.
