Description

As school communities look to review and update their safety practices and programs, leaders often hear that it is important to implement evidence-based programs. However, without a clear framework for properly assessing current school efforts, needs, and the identification of evidence-based school safety programs, it can be an overwhelming task. But it does not have to be.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to find programs that are not only credible and effective, but that are feasible and sustainable in their school setting. Presenters will examine current evidence-based program resources, discuss the importance of conducting a needs assessment, and review what action steps leaders can take and the pitfalls they should avoid. 

This webinar is part one of a three-part series on school safety program planning and implementation.

Superintendents, principals, teachers, school board members, and others working in school safety or involved in the STOP School Violence program
