Crisis Management in
Dr. Robert Decker of the University of Northern Iowa discusses organizing school crisis teams to prepare for effective crisis management. Dr. Decker explains how to build a crisis management plan for your school before crisis strikes. Educators usually have not been trained to handle the types of crises (cultural differences, an incredible array of attitudes, and emotional and social upheavals) that are occurring with increasing frequency in schools. Dr. Decker provides a step-by-step plan for organizing crisis teams and implementing a crisis management plan specific to your school’s needs.
