Safe Celebrations

This Academy is for educators who serve a high school population.  Educators from a School Safety funded site have the ability to attend for free.  To learn more, click on the event. 

Event Overview

Two of high schools most iconic events are prom and graduation.  Unfortunately, these celebrations sometimes bring tragic consequences.
