UConn to host training session on NE school safety
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut is hosting a training session for New England educators this week on how to prepare and respond to a crisis.
The program developed by the National Association of School Psychologists will be held at the Storrs campus from Monday through Wednesday for teachers, administrators and graduate students from around New England.
Schools across the country have been re-evaluating security in the wake of the December school shooting in Newtown in which 26 people were killed.
The event has been organized by faculty in the university’s psychology program with the Connecticut Association of School Psychologists.
One workshop will offer training on how school buildings can be made safer and how to design a crisis response plan. Another will focus on what to do once the crisis has occurred.
