With an emphasis on federal funding, including the Safer Communities Act, the workshop will provide information on funding eligibility, access and more. Attendees can submit specific questions in advance here, as part of the workshop will be reserved for a live Q&A.

"Faced with a worsening mental health crisis, we must take immediate action to protect kids and teens nationwide. New federal funding that supports student safety, such as the Safer Communities Act, is a significant step in the right direction and it's important for school leaders to have a firm grasp on how it can help," said Ross Young, executive vice president of Linewize. "Our goal is for all attendees to walk away from this workshop with a deep understanding of how this funding can support their school districts this year."

Young will be joined by Teodora Pavkovic, director of community engagement with Linewize and Phillip Lovell, associate executive director with All4Ed. In addition to federal funding, the experts will discuss the importance of risk detection technology and how it plays a key role in safeguarding students and preventing violence, bullying, self-harm and more. Attendees will learn about Linewize Monitor, an advanced student threat detection tool that helps districts spot at-risk students.

"Mental health is key to student success," said Phillip Lovell, associate executive director for All4Ed, a Washington, D.C. policy organization. "The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act includes important resources for school districts to support the comprehensive needs of young people. I am pleased to join Linewize in working with school districts to discuss how, together, we can give our students every opportunity to thrive."

All workshop participants are eligible to receive a complimentary Linewize Student Safety Audit, which provides schools with access to risk profiles and recommendations for implementing a holistic student safety program.
