Digital Threat Assessment Trainings

One way we can work to keep our schools’ safe is by protecting against digital threats. The clear majority of recent school violence attacks have had precursors leaked online in the form of social media posts. Knowing where, how, and when to look for this critical information is the task at hand. There are simple and free online tools and techniques that all those responsible for ensuring the safety in your schools need to be using on a regular basis. Given “Safer Schools Together” role in actively assisting school districts and police agencies across North America, you will not find a more up-to-date presentation in this specific subject area.

The Colorado School Safety Resource Center and the Colorado School District Self Insurance Pool will be partnering with Safer Schools Together to offer three days of Digital Threat Assessment Workshop from Wednesday through Friday, Sept. 25 through 27, 2019. This training will help those who share responsibility for school safety better understand and respond to safety challenges presented by social media.

The digital threat assessment training will provide tools to identify student safety concerns and provide strategies for dealing with the current digital world. Advanced and Train-the-Trainer classes will require a pre-requisite(s) to attend.

Getting Into NYC Kindergarten: All of Your Options

Join Alina Adams, best-selling author of Getting Into NYC Kindergarten, and test prep experts from LectureLab for insider admissions know-how. Parents — you will get an overview of all your options. Do you know the difference between zoned and unzoned schools? Who gets priority for a Dual Language program? What is the difference between a Citywide and a District Gifted & Talented curriculum? How old does your child need to be to attend a public versus a private Kindergarten? Do you know the role Pre-K plays in admissions? If you answered “no” to even one question, then this is the workshop for you! This event is for parents of children aged 0-5.

All event tickets come with wine and light refreshments, learning materials, and a gift bag for the road. We do ask that no children attend our events, as we want to ensure that each participant is able to fully focus and engage in the presentation.
