Register for upcoming trainings on active shooter, natural disaster plans
Registration is under way for an all-day workshop designed to help schools create high-quality emergency plans that cover active shooter and natural disaster events.
Passed into law by the Legislature (Senate File 2364), it requires all k-12 schools in Iowa to write plans that prepare for these events.
The workshops are being held throughout the state at each Area Education Agency.
As opposed to district-wide emergency plans, each school must have a high-quality emergency plan that is unique to each building.
The workshop will focus on specific planning required. Attendees will also learn how to form a planning team. All schools in Iowa must have their plans completed by June 30, 2019.
The workshops are held in September and October. Register for the workshop nearest you.
