The need to keep kids safe in the classroom is essential. As educators, In loco parentis has new meaning for all of us.

As we contemplate how to address the threats we face, we want to offer some resources to educational leaders who are likely to be called upon to take action to reassure the families and staff we serve that necessary measures will be taken in an attempt to assure their safety.

Here are a few resources that we think may be helpful:

Professional Development at USC Rossier
The Office for Professional Development offers certificate and non-certificate programs as well as customized professional development for teachers, leaders & administrators in K-12, offices of education and school districts.

USC Center for Excellence in Teaching
The Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET) promotes a vibrant culture of teaching and learning for the university community, for schools, and for faculty. Through a variety of programs and resources for USC faculty and future faculty (graduate fellows/TAs), CET encourages best practices in course design, instruction, and evaluation.
