Planning a successful school safety program often means needing to find and work alongside various types of partners and collaborators. However, identifying and managing those relationships can sometimes be difficult. What should you look for in a collaborator, and when in the process should you reach out?

In this webinar, participants will learn how to find partners that best suit their school safety program goals and determine when in the planning process to connect with them. Presenters will also discuss how to define scopes of work, develop an outreach strategy, conduct an evaluation, and successfully implement a program. We will also discuss best practices for communicating and collaborating on STOP grants.

This webinar is part two of a three-part series on school safety program planning and implementation.

Learning Objectives

  • Assess and select the collaborators necessary to carrying out grant responsibilities.
  • Define partner roles and responsibilities needed to successfully fulfill a STOP grant.
