MERIT Active Shooter Training
October 1st from 8am-5pm

Rethink Active Shooter TrainingMERIT not only teaches you how to respond in an emergency, it highlights the importance of establishing a prevention-based active shooter program at your school, concentrating on preventing the act of violence before it occurs. Past acts of violence in the K–12 environments and current strategies and policies will be reviewed to build a comprehensive active shooter program-providing techniques that will aid in reducing the risk and the anxiety/fear of staff. Participants will learn the importance of integrating behavioral intervention teams and about the risk and threat assessment processes in addition to learning approaches on effective best practices to consider during an active shooter incident.

Critical Issues in Campus Safety
October 2nd from 8am-5pm

Large-scale emergency incidents and disasters can occur anywhere on any school campus. When they do, all eyes will fall on the Campus Emergency Team. As a responsible educator, you will be critically evaluated on your preparedness and your schools’ ability to manage the crisis event. This course is designed to both refresh and train your Campus Emergency Management Team, and to give them the tools that will enable them to manage a wide variety of emergency situations. Participants will be exposed to case studies and practical exercises that will allow them to apply the principles taught in class.
