Supporting Schools in Response to Nashville

For schools in Tennessee
Wednesday, March 29, 2023
4:30 PM Central / 5:30 PM Eastern

Joffe Emergency Services will join us to:

  • Briefly discuss what is publicly known about the event as context.
  • Discuss the action items that schools need to take in the immediate: 
    1. We frequently see elevated numbers of threats in schools after these types of events occur. Building a threat management process will be critical and ensuring that people know who to report them to (see something, say something) and that people know what to do when they are reported (they said something, now we have to do something). 
    2. Talk about higher-than-usual security patrols. 
    3. Talk about the ways in which parents can express and share questions, concerns, etc.
    4. Think through how social media plays a role in threat detection and reporting. 
  • Discuss the action items for schools in the medium term:
    1. What are the summer priorities created with regard to assessing campus safety strategy, etc? 
    2. What's our "why" in how we manage security and threats on campus? How might we evolve that as events continue to shift our greater thinking?
    3. Prioritize staff training and default/basic responses. 
  • Caring for Covenant Fund: A fund has been established at the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee from which all proceeds will go directly to those affected by this tragedy.

- The Zoom link will be included in the reminder emails sent 24 hours and 2 hours prior to the start time.
- The session will be recorded and a link will be emailed to all registrants within 72 business hours.
