Online Safety Course for Substitutes

Keeping students and yourself safe in the event of an emergency situation is a critical responsibility of substitute teachers. While these situations rarely occur, it is important to know what to do if a lockdown, or other crisis situation arises.

This short online course will provide you with guidance on what to do in case of emergency. The course provides general practices and ideas, but is not intended to supersede directions given from school administrators or law enforcement. There is a certificate to download after you have successfully completed the course.
