Full course description


As many schools transitioned from remote to in-person or hybrid schooling, communities faced a host of school safety challenges. A theme that underpins these challenges is uncertainty.

In this training, our panel of experts address some of the concerns that students, teachers, and administrators have expressed about the return to in-person schooling. Also featured is a short video in which school community members share their hopes and worries about school safety.
