School Crisis Response training – Oct. 22
Those interested in learning about School Crisis Response training can take part in a session presented by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools on Oct. 22 from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in room US 1, University Square, 2000 K Street in Bakersfield. Cost is $20 and includes a continental breakfast and training materials.
The training takes a proactive approach in preparing students, staff and administration to handle crisis when it happens. Presenters will include Kern County Superintendent of Schools’ Safe Schools Consultant Linda Sargent, Bakersfield Police Department Sgt. Joe Grubbs and Kern High School District Police Chief Steve Alvidrez.
Many things can affect the quality of campus life — a student suicide attempt, an accidental teacher death or a gang initiated drive-by-shooting to name a few. Sargent, Grubbs and Alvidrez will teach participants how to lessen the probability of a crisis, respond to a crisis and recover from a crisis, as well as introduce them to the School Incident Command System and the National Incident Management System.
Crisis response teams are made up of school administrators, law enforcement officers, counselors, community members, parents and students.
