Sensible Steps Webinar Series

As schools across the nation release students for the summer, staff are preparing to tackle the summer building and maintenance task list.  The Sensible Steps Webinar Series, a 10-session webinar series, is the perfect summer assignment for all your school staff. This comprehensive training program is designed in 10 functional, one hour, sessions.

Each session is driven by real-life case studies, providing real solutions to real concerns, as presented by school district personnel. And, it introduces dozens of sensible, low- or no-cost steps staff can use to make any school a healthier school.

Want to start training your district or schools staff today? Here’s a sneak preview to the Sensible Steps Assessment Tool, an excellent way to start the process, and to the new online-training modules.
