ABSTRACT

Recovering from Natural Disasters: Preparation is Key   [open pdf - 322KB]

"This issue of Lessons Learned summarizes the discussions that occurred at a U.S. Department of Education-sponsored meeting held November 2006 with representatives of five states- Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas-that have suffered damage from one or more hurricanes. Meeting participants emphasized the need for leadership and readiness at both the SEA and LEA to prepare for and quickly respond to a disaster, and to begin the recovery process by establishing partnerships well before the onset of a disaster."
