Playing with the Problem: Emergency Response & Risk Management

Working in small groups in a breakout room, you’ll encounter an emergency scenario and consider how to respond constructively, mitigate risk, and manage boarding and day families. Share and learn about protocols at peer schools and have the chance to ask questions of the presenters to think through what might need updating in their own handbooks or practices.
