We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 to determine how best we can continue serving schools throughout Texas. With the growing number of cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) nationally, we have canceled all currently scheduled in-person trainings until further notice. AVAILABLE NOW: In an effort to provide Sandy Hook Promise - Say Something Virtual Training during this time, we have transitioned this in-person training to a virtual format. See the updated information below on how to register for one of these virtual trainings.
Sandy Hook Promise is partnering with the Texas School Safety Center to bring Say Something, the proven violence prevention program to middle and high schools in Texas. Say Something is a no-cost, easy-to-implement, and life-saving program that will help school personnel and/or school-based law enforcement to teach students how to recognize warning signs of potential violence or self-harm and act immediately to intervene. The training will take 2.5 hours with a wide range of activities and resources to ensure training integration within the school culture, supported by student-led SAVE Promise Clubs.
After the Say Something training, educators will:
- Develop an action plan to carry-out the Say Something message year-round
- Learn how to reinforce the Say Something three-step process through the use of easy-to-implement mini-lessons
- Learn how to cultivate a culture of trusted adults
This training is open to Texas public ISDs, open-enrollment charter schools, junior colleges, school-based law enforcement, and state agencies that support schools. Due to limited space, vendors and contractors are not permitted to register for this training.
TCOLE Credit will not be provided for this virtual training.
