PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new training program, entitled SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM, which provides schools with federal level training, will assist in securing Special Education funding.
The new program trains and certifies school-based personnel to audit their safety, emergency management and Special Education systems - known by the U.S. Department of Education as a Climate Assessment. This assessment provides important documentation for schools to apply for Federal grant monies.
Dale Yeager of SERAPH states, "The U.S. Department of Education requires climate assessments of Special Education departments and comprehensive assessment of security and safety issues. "Without this examination of their districts they will have difficulty securing much needed Federal grant money."
The current program also includes a Grant Map, which provides available federal grant information and detailed strategy for securing 2015 funding.
In 1989, SERAPH designed and performed the first U.S. School Security Management Audit. After the Columbine shooting, the White House asked SERAPH to provide a report on the "STATE OF SCHOOL SAFETY IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS" to members of Congress, including the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. SERAPH provided three reports between 2000 and 2007.
