4.0 Tabletop Exercises
This section will provide tabletop exercises for you to use in your district, charter, or junior college. Tabletop exercises are small group discussions that walk through a scenario and the courses of action a school will need to take before, during, and after an emergency to lessen the impact on the school community. Participants problem-solve together through detailed discussion of roles, responsibilities, and anticipated courses of action. Tabletop exercises leverage a defined scenario to direct discussion and may need an experienced facilitator, depending on the complexity and objectives of the exercise.
