- Technical Assistance:
Consultation provided on standards 550M (1-8) regarding documentation required for injuries/accidents. You will need to start conducting practiced escape drills in the afternoon and when schoolagers are present, you will need to vary the time of day you do your monthly practiced escape drills. Since you have only one staff person who is MAT certified, you would need to make sure that one person is there at all times when a child with emergency medication is present, however it is encouraged you have more than one person MAT certified to make sure you have adequate coverage. Please review the standards and technical assistance regarding playground equipment and resilient surfacing.
