Keeping our schools safe seems to dominate news headlines. Now Ashland University and many other state and local schools have a new tool to help them train for the worst case scenarios. "Beyond Lockdown" is an online safety course which answers many questions like, "do you feel that you don't have enough training to keep you and your students safe? Most schools think they're following proper procedure.

Dr. Amy Klinger, associate professor of educational administration at Ashland University is an expert in school safety and security issues. She is a certified Department of Homeland Security Instructor as well as a certified ALICE trainer. She says "Beyond Lockdown" aims to empower and educate us; especially now, when it's needed more than ever. While shootings are a main concern, intruders and severe weather events are also things this course will prepare you for.

The course is available on- demand and delivered completely online. It features engaging, updated video lectures as well as interactive features. The course can be completed at your leisure and you can choose CEU participation credit or graduate credit from Ashland University. For more information, and to register, visit eschoolsafety.org
