SAFESCHOOLS PROVIDES FREE ‘AFTERMATH OF TRAGEDY’ RESOURCES FOR SCHOOLS
As news of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School reached the SafeSchools offices on Friday, our hearts were broken as we learned that 20 innocent children and 6 school staff members were killed by a gunman.
Now is the time to come together to support the victims of Sandy Hook and to do our part to help all the schools across the U.S. deal with this tragedy. That’s why we’d like to offer our Managing the Aftermath of Tragedy courses free of charge to any school administrator or staff member. These courses include:
The courses are written by our expert-authors, Drs. Scott and Donna Poland. Dr. Scott Poland is Associate Professor at the Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University. He is the author of a number of books on youth suicide and school crisis response including Coping with Crisis and is a renowned consultant to schools and districts nationwide. Dr. Donna Poland has served as a school administrator for 19 years including service as principal of three different secondary schools. She is currently Director of University Middle School in Davie, Florida.
