 This workshop will help you:

Take the stress, complexity, and hassle out of K–12 safety, security, and emergency preparedness in your schools.
Quickly identify and mitigate safety and security risks in school buildings.
Develop the capabilities of staff at all levels to prevent and respond effectively to virtually any emergency.
Avoid common wasteful investments in technology that do little to improve overall safety and security in schools.

Many Schools Wait Until an Event to Act

In the wake of a tragedy somewhere in a school setting, it is normal for school administrators to feel vulnerable. As a result, they frequently contract for safety and security assessments of their schools. They may be left with a long punch list of expensive, boilerplate, time-consuming improvement opportunities and limited guidance for effective management of a safety, security, and emergency preparedness program.

This workshop will provide attendees with an actionable blueprint for managing an effective and sustainable district-wide safety, security, and emergency management program without unreasonable investments of time or money. Program attendees will have the ability to return to their schools and make dramatic no and low-cost changes virtually overnight.

Altaris has been very helpful in taking our safety and security planning to a new level. I have been impressed with their level of knowledge regarding safety and security. They work well with all stakeholder groups. They are accessible 24-7 and understand the realities of how schools function.

Superintendent, Arlington Central School District

  • The exact visual model every school should utilize for reunification
  • Essential ingredients for a school parent reunification kit
  • Why the use of non-school owned locations is a bad idea
  • The key staff roles and responsibilities for a successful reunification process

We have had a great experience working with Altaris. Having a facility in New York City only a short distance from the United Nations is a huge concern. Altaris has helped us navigate the complex area of safety, security and emergency preparedness and quickly put us on the road to a safer school.
