The Crisis Response Program consists of the following components:
- Staff Training – Online courses cover topics such as active shooter, school lockdown drills, bomb threat / IED preparedness and FEMA courses. Custom courses can be created with district-specific procedures and plans for emergency response, complete with seamless introduction to district staff through the WORKS platform.
- Student Training – An ALICE Active Shooter Response training course for students is included.
- Reporting Tools – Students and educators have access to the WORKS Student Bullying and Safety Reporting Systems to report bullying, safety, health and wellness concerns via phone or online. These reports are immediately auto-communicated to key district staff to address. Each report is reviewed and if imminent danger is suspected, a call tree is activated 24/7 to ensure administrators can take action.
- Recurring Safety Tasks – The system helps administrators by managing the timing and completion of various safety drills, ongoing security maintenance and building-specific tasks. Additionally, the system manages the annual review of plans, procedures and informational forms to ensure they are up to date.
- Parent InfoCenter – The Parent InfoCenter gives parents direct, easy access to the Student Bullying & Safety Reporting systems and national crisis hotlines, as well as provides student safety information, such as the signs of bullying or other student safety issues.
- 24/7 Support – The WORKS award-winning Client Services Team can be reached at all times for training and system support.
While training is extremely important to ensuring school safety, effective crisis plans provide sufficient preventative and preparedness measures, response and crisis management information, and tools for recovering from the crisis event.
