On Thursday, May 31, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET, ED’s OSHS and REMS TA Center hosted a Webinar on how K-12 schools and school districts can better prepare for reunification after a community-wide disaster.

Presenters discussed issues related to minors being separated from their parents or legal guardians after a large emergency or disaster; planning for reunification, including integrating plans related to children with disabilities or access and functional needs; and resources that schools, school districts, and their community partners can use to facilitate reunification, such as the National Emergency Child Locator Center and Unaccompanied Minors Registry.

The Webinar included a PowerPoint presentation. Following the presentation, the presenters answered participant questions in a Question and Answer session and a Community of Practice Web Chat.
