Do you need help pinpointing all points of risk at your school? Can you then identify steps that will help to mitigate the risk of harm? This program delves into areas that warrant the most risk such as:

  • Contact with adults (parents, employees, consultants, contractors, coaches, tutors, etc.)
  • Contact with students (existing and new, those at other schools and alumni)
  • Physical plant – classrooms & meeting rooms, locker rooms, theatre changing area, remote areas on property and dorms
  • Activities – international trips, overnight local trips (sports competitions, model UN, robotics events, etc.

Perennial favorite, Caryn Pass, speaks on the following topics: employment issues, students' issues and general school community issues all in the realm of creating safe spaces in schools. Megan H. Mann, a counsel with Venable's Labor, Employment and Education practices also presents.
