The S2 Institute School Security Planning Workshop is a one-day seminar designed to educate school leaders about effective security and emergency readiness measures for reducing risk of active shooter violence. In this unique program, school security consultant Craig Gundry presents a comprehensive and integrated risk management strategy specifically designed to address the unique culture and operational characteristics of public and independent schools.
To assist school leaders in assessing the their current security measures and identifying potential options for improvement, several self-assessment exercises are conducted through the course of the workshop focusing on issues such as threat assessment and management plans, physical security vulnerability, and emergency readiness.
The protective measures and emergency preparations explored during the School Security Planning Workshop are based on the Guardian SafeSchool Program® standards and reflect state-of-the-art practices in school security. Emphasis in this program is placed on common problems and practical solutions based on the instructor’s extensive experience working with schools across the nation.
