FREE Educator Workshop-School Violence Prevention and Response
During the morning session, the focus will be on prevention of school violence and bullying incidents. Dr. Lisa Pescara-Kovach, and Ret. Commander Mike Webber, review school threat assessment from a variety of angles (i.e., potential shooter traits, bullying behavior, and suggestions on how to respond when warning signs manifest themselves). During the afternoon session, officers Tim McLeod, Mark Potter and Tony Castillo from the Oregon Police Department, discuss how to handle an emergency incident if prevention measures fail. This session will cover ALICE training with an emphasis on organizational and individual implementation of concepts.
