In the face of unforeseen events, student safety and continued student learning is top of mind for most school districts. No matter where your district is in developing a readiness plan, there are steps you can make today to ensure your school community is informed, engaged, and ready to provide learning continuity.

Districts from across the nation are developing emergency preparedness plans to guarantee school communication and learning continues when the unexpected occurs. This presentation features several institutions and describes how they are using mass notification technology to inform and engage the community and employing e-Learning to ensure student learning continues. Also provided are insights and best practices from fellow educators.
