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.
As an administrator in a large independent school, I have been involved in numerous situations involving technology over the years. As the proliferation of cell phones and social media platforms increased, I began to feel less confident in being able to navigate the cyberworld that is so familiar to our students.
To increase my confidence, I enrolled in the day-long ‘Digital Threat Assessment’ course offered by Safer Schools Together. The course far surpassed my expectations in providing me with the trends of today’s digital world, and the tools to make sense of them. The course was so impactful because it taught me the skills and then provided realistic scenarios for me to apply them.
An unexpected bonus came after the course in the form of shared resources on diverse topics that will surely come in handy in future situations.
The next time that I find myself investigating a situation connected with technology, I know that my new competencies will be invaluable.
I enthusiastically recommend the ‘Digital Threat Assessment’ course to school administrators and to anyone who is looking to understand how technology is being used by teenagers today.
This type of training fosters networking & inter-professional communication amongst community partners.
Eye-opening presentation. The information gathered will improve the safety and culture of my community and school. Thank you!
