preparED combines contextualized presentations with active, experiential learning. This approach provides learners with new knowledge and engages them in a simulated real-life experience that is relevant to their work in a K-12 environment.

  • Over two days, participants work through a functional emergency exercise, allowing them the opportunity to practice their skills against a simulated event.
  • The event is divided into blocks. Each block begins with an instructor-led presentation, after which your emergency team responds (through role-play) to the ever-changing circumstances of an emergency that has struck the school district and is causing mayhem for the schools. (We’ll assign you to a team.)
  • The scenario exercises both school-level and district-level responsibilities and needed response. (Every year is a different scenario.)
