A long-standing leader in school safety online training, Vector Solutions is trusted nationwide for its award-winning software solutions for faculty, staff, and students in Higher Education, K-12, and Special Education. eSchool News recently spoke to Rob Buelow, Head of Product for Education for Vector, regarding back-to-school tips to start the year off right. Rob focused on the steps needed to create safer, healthier schools proactively. Although much of the school safety discussion centers around gun control legislation and the physical safety measures in school, there is a significant trend of focusing on prevention and how to get ahead of safety issues before they manifest into tragedy.
This requires looking hard at issues like bullying, mental health, social and emotional learning, relationship building, basic needs, stress levels, inclusivity and belonging, and more. Vector's recent addition of dynamic and timely online student courses on safety topics helps schools teach and promote important topics on safety, wellness, and social and emotional learning that impact their students and the school community.
