Now that we are a few months into the school year, our nation continues to struggle with how to safely have students and staff return to school and find some semblance of normalcy amid this pandemic.
Continuing my conversation about reopening and returning to school safely, we explore the idea of contact tracing and how that can help communities, schools, and businesses find viable solutions to safely reopen.
Cheryl Galloway has more than ten years of experience in school administration focusing on the core areas of school safety, crisis response, community and government relations, facilities use and sustainability. She served as Emergency Operations Center Director and Safety and Security Coordinator for the Gilroy Unified School District (GUSD) where she created and trained all staff on the district’s comprehensive school safety plan and coordinated multiple active shooter and disaster drills involving the district’s public safety partners. As coordinator of GUSD’s facility use program, Cheryl streamlined community use—successfully curbing abuse, updating facility use policies and increasing revenue.
Today, Cheryl is the Director of Education and Community Engagement for Facilitron, a data-driven facility management platform that streamlines facility scheduling and rental requests for schools, colleges, and cities, enabling insight into real-time cost and utilization data.
Cheryl and John get on the mic to discuss:
* How the Sandy Hook and Garlic Festival school shooting impacted her life and career
* The meaning of “Run - Hide - Defend”
* Ensuring safety after a school shooting and a pandemic
* How she shows up each day to help communities safely reopen their schools
* How Facilitron shows up to help communities focus on viable solutions for 2020 and beyond
