Media and Podcasts


Episode 74 of the Get Connected podcast welcomes Nicole Mann, co-founder of SOS ThreeSixty, along with Jaime Lassman, head of lower school at Maumee Valley Country Day School, as the Blackbaud K–12 Advisory Board co-host, to discuss ways that schools can help keep children safe online during distance learning.

The Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) and SOS ThreeSixty, Inc. announce a new partnership to support, strengthen and empower teaching and non-teaching staff to have the safest and most meaningful relationships with students. The company’s new asynchronous online course, “Boundary Training for Schools: Creating a Culture of Safety” – along with an optional follow up workshop experience – will be made available to NWAIS member schools.

Establishing strong and healthy boundaries between staff and students is fundamental to having a safe environment. This new, 30-minute, self-paced online course, designed specifically for schools, includes valuable safety resources that provide actionable steps that your school community could take immediately to become safer. A Certificate of Completion – for insurance and legal requirements – is also included. Additionally, access to expert guidance on this subject, after the training, provides learners with an opportunity to discuss any situation that may arise – or to address any questions.

Host Jacquie Jordan (two-time Emmy nominated TV Producer, three-time author, New York Times bestselling author), co-hosts Phillip Andrew Barbb (two-time Emmy nominated TV Producer, author) and Stephanie Cobain (TV Producer, writer, Production Coordinator) speak with the change agents, storytellers, and activators behind the scenes making impact. Jacquie Jordan is joined by Avery Mann, Co-creator of SOS ThreeSixty Inc. Jacquie and Avery discuss child sex trafficking in the United States, what the media shows, how the FBI handles it and what every parent should know about protecting their child.
The overnight popularity of Zoom meetings now has educators and parents thinking about online safety for children in a whole new way. Schools needed to create distance learning programs within days, leaving educators and others at a significant disadvantage in keeping students safe.
