      The Pandemic caught everyone unprepared and has highlighted the importance to have an emergency plan. As we return students to classrooms around the world let us be prepared for any kind of emergency or crisis that schools may face. In order to be properly prepared, a school should follow the 7 steps in Emergency Planning Management. 

      Prepare


      Alert


      Communicate


      Respond


      Recover


      Assess


      Mitigate 


      Join our discussion with the former federal law enforcement agent and CEO of Clearpath EPM Mike Johnson. He will guide all participants through these steps to be prepared for the future and help schools avoid possible disruption.

    • Round Table Discussion - School Transportation – Technology to improve Safety, Efficiency and Communications.
      COVID-19 has strained resources at schools due to changing regulations, schedules impacting routes and requirements for the health and safety of staff and students. Technology has been the enabler for schools to deliver a quality transportation service despite these disruptors. A command-and-control centre providing an overview of the bus operations combined with an app has allowed schools to respond effectively. 
       
      Join our discussion with Carlos Guerrero, International School Transportation and Operational Risk expert in program development, policy writing, and crisis response planning related to student travel, campus safety, child protection, and medical response. He will share insights on how technology can help to: 

      •    improve safety through documenting and sharing
      •    create efficiency through cost saving tools including route planning 
      •    support engagement by communicating relevant information such as schedule and procedural changes. 

      As this is a Round Table session we will limit attendance to a maximum of 6 schools.  Please RSVP if you intend to join.
