For Educators

The H.E.R.O. Program seamlessly blends the sciences of protection and education. Because teachers are a critical part of the program and so much is currently required of them, this program is intentionally designed to be teacher friendly with minimal preparation. H.E.R.O. lessons meet English Language Arts standards and can augment existing social emotional learning programs.

Based on the best practices in education, the instructional methodology of the curriculum includes journaling, compare-contrast, narrative, application, and problem-solving.

As part of the H.E.R.O. Program, educators will engage in professional development via a facilitated, documentary-style video training course. This course is designed for all staff and faculty members, with specific segments to teach educators how to utilize H.E.R.O. skills and implement the H.E.R.O. curriculum.

We know your time is valuable. That’s why we offer optional Professional Development Units (PDU) for educators participating in the H.E.R.O. Program. These 15-hour Carnegie units are offered by Brandman University, an industry leader in continuing higher education.

The H.E.R.O. Program includes a student accessibility guide designed to help educators adapt H.E.R.O. skills for students with disabilities. This guide was designed by school psychologists and special education experts to provide equity and access for all students during a critical incident.

English Language Arts (ELA) standards and critical thinking concepts are incorporated throughout the H.E.R.O. Program, limiting impact on instructional hours. Lessons can be easily adapted to accommodate cultural differences within large districts. K-12 lessons available.

The H.E.R.O. After School Program is designed to teach 21st century learning concepts in a simple, condensed and interactive format. The program is equally effective for religious institutions and community groups. K-8 activity plans available.

The vital leadership role that is required of teachers is all the more critical during a violent intruder situation. But, because danger is not contained to classrooms, the H.E.R.O. program includes tools for school-family connection. Both the school and the family will learn empowerment strategies that will keep them safe in school and beyond.

Public Schools

Common Core standards and 21st century critical thinking concepts are incorporated in a multidisciplinary / cross-curricular design, making the curriculum adaptable for any classroom environment.

Private Schools

Our private school curriculum mirrors the standards of the public-school curriculum, while taking into account the sensitivity of your specific school family and their beliefs, practices, and priorities.

After School

The H.E.R.O. after-school program is specifically designed to teach students in a more simple, condensed, and interactive format. The after-school program is equally effective for religious institutions and community groups.

“The H.E.R.O. Program is allowing us to properly prepare our students should they be in an active shooter situation. We practice how to be ready for an earthquake and fire, but the reality is this is just as important. I couldn’t be more grateful to those who have developed this easy to teach, non-threatening curriculum that will allow my students to be safe should they ever find themselves in this situation. As a principal, this is not something anyone hopes to encounter, but it provides me with a bit of reassurance knowing my students will know how to react and what to do in this situation.”
