COVID-19 has been a heavy focus on International School Management for the past 18 months and now that students in most schools around the world have returned to campus, it is important that schools plan for the safety and security of their communities for a variety of threats and emergencies that they may face. International schools promise to provide and maintain a safe, orderly and healthy environment; yet, each school faces unique threats and hazards and, based on their location, can expect different levels of outside emergency response services that may not be as robust or as effective as in some other countries.
This roundtable discussion will focus on the main threats, beyond COVID-19, that International Schools are concerned with today. In addition, we will address the key stages necessary for preparedness at International Schools which include:
Prevention and Mitigation
The responsibility for preparedness along with the training of stakeholders is the responsibility of school leaders.
