As an administrator at an independent school, I believe it is incredibly important that we educate our kids on how to navigate the online world. With so many of our students communicating through social media, we want to give our kids the tools necessary to make safe choices, and to avoid putting themselves in compromising situations. Nick Chernoff’s presentation struck the perfect tone with our students, balancing a hopeful, student-centered approach, with the necessary messages surrounding the uglier sides of social media, such as sextortion and the risks of sharing inappropriate content. This presentation helped contribute to a positive school culture and was well received by students, faculty, and parents alike. I would highly recommend this presentation for any school.
“As a Community and School Resource Officer, I was in awe of the information this training presented. Social media is not an option, it is the way our students and youth communicate on a daily basis. I simply wasn’t speaking their language, and my relationships were not as productive because of it. Within two weeks of taking the Digital Threat Assessment training from Safer Schools Together, four students walked into the office at one of my schools to report that their friend was contemplating suicide. During the initial interview with them, I was able to utilize Snapchat’s new SnapMap feature to quickly locate the student on a map in real time. Previous to the training, I didn’t know that there was such a tool that would allow us this opportunity. I believe that a student is alive right now due to the courage of the four students and the quick use of available open source social media. This is a MUST have training for school district and any law enforcement who deal with youth. This training WILL save lives!!”
Lynwood Unified School District has been working with Safer Schools Together (SST) for three years. The monthly worrisome reports we received from SST are a valuable and essential tool in keeping our Lynwood District community safe. I am continually impressed with their level of professional support and outstanding customer services. If you are in charge of security, safety, and/or law enforcement for your school campus community, SST is a valuable partner to have on your side.
Theresa Campbell is a wonderful resource and asset to School Districts. Her work is thorough, and her skills at connecting with students, staff and parents to determine the issues and identify solutions to problem behaviours are remarkable. Theresa ensures that those involved in the process feel heard, respected and confident that the outcome will be fair. I would recommend Theresa without hesitation.
By far one of the best, if not the best, presentations I have attended. This course has made me feel more confident in identifying early warning signs and opened me up to realizing I must share info with other agencies.
