Disaster Preparedness Workshop

Details on the Disaster Preparedness Workshop: Coordination, Collaboration, and Capacity Building workshop hosted by State Superintendent Tony Thurmond.

March 6, 2019 Forum: Disaster Preparedness Workshop

October 2017 sadly marked a new kind of “new normal” for California wildfires and the beginning of a greater role for the California Department of Education in emergency response and recovery.

This workshop provided a place where attendees could share successes and challenges, hear and learn best practices from educational institutions who experienced these wildfires and participate in a discussion on minimizing the impact of school closures. The goal of this workshop was to offer guidance and support to our LEAs through professional learning on emergency preparation, response, and recovery.
