Proactive Measures in School Safety
Grand Sierra Resort
McKinley Meeting Room

April 14, 2020
Registration is 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM. Presentations will go 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
The morning session will cover Digital and Behavioral Threat Assessment programs in schools as a proactive means of identifying at-risk or violent behavior in schools before it escalates into an act of violence in order to facilitate pre-incident intervention through mental health and diversion programs. This includes teen suicidal behavior. Suicide is the second leading cause of teen death in the U.S., so we must address this important issue. Case studies of recent events of school violence will be used as reference. This segment will be presented by the world renowned subject matter expert Theresa Campbell, President of Safer Schools Together. Ms. Campbell works closely with the FBI and Secret Service on post incident debriefs of mass school killings, to include the Parkland Florida Stoneman-Douglas school killings. This is a hands–on workshop and attendees are asked to bring a laptop or similar Wifi capable device.
A working lunch sponsored by Crisis Go will be provided. A short demonstration by Crisis Go on how their Apps work into school emergency planning and response, to include the Accountability Planning required under the Nevada Revised Statutes, will be presented during the working lunch.
The afternoon session will cover the importance of compliance to school safety and emergency management planning and training requirements in order to be prepared for all natural and manmade threats to school safety. Infrastructure target hardening through the Hazard and Vulnerability Assessment process, emergency planning, to include Pandemic planning, school emergency response, and the legal standard of “Foreseeability” as it relates to compliance with school emergency management programs will be topics of discussion. A school Active Assailant Response tabletop exercise will be a portion of this presentation. This section will be facilitated by Subject Matter Expert Jeff Kaye, President of School Safety Operations Inc.
School Administrators, School Board Members, School Staff Members involved in School Safety, Risk Managers, Law Enforcement involved in School Safety, Community Partners in Mental Health, Parents, and anyone who works in the areas related to school safety or funding of school safety projects.
Proactive measures in school safety planning, training, and response are the most effective method to address today’s level of threat to safe school culture and climate. Formation of a collaborative team in schools is the recommended best practice from the U.S. Department of Education as a means to ensure compliance with school emergency management planning and training programs. In order for a team to be effective, they must receive training. Attendees to this workshop will leave with valuable take-ways they can use to shape and move forwards with safety and emergency management programs in their schools.
