CANCELLED - Parent Workshop: Intro to PA's Online Secondary Transition Guide

On May 14, 2013, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., ARIN will offer a workshop for parents of a student with a disability that will provide an introduction to the secondary transition planning process, focusing on this new website and including an opportunity for "hands on" exploration using computers in ARIN’s lab.

CPE Course: Trainer of Trainers in Crisis Management for Educators
In Pennsylvania, the School Code mandates that educational staff intervene in situations in which a person poses a threat to him/herself or to another in the school setting. This course will provide participants with both the expertise and the skills necessary to train others in safe strategies for dealing with these situations. Included are six modules (one per day) that cover safe, hands-on physical interventions appropriate for crisis situations in the educational setting, preventative information, and skill development performance, feedback, and assessment.
ARIN School Safety Committee
Due to the rural nature of our communities and the lack of financial resources, it is imperative that school district personnel, emergency workers, law enforcement officers, firemen, and all other first responders collaborate in order to maximize the use of existing resources providing safer schools.
Savings on Workers’ Compensation
Workers' compensation is an unfortunate cost of doing business that we are all familiar with. However there are ways for school districts to lower workers' compensation premiums. By joining a local purchasing consortium and maintaining an active workplace safety committee, ARIN has been able to save significantly on workers' compensation costs.
