Last month's tragic incident in Newtown, Connecticut, requires school districts to reassess security measures.
The January 18 forum, Safe and Secure Schools: Perspectives after Newtown, will include panel discussions on Safety and Security at the School Building Level and State School Security Procedures and Requirements. It will begin with a keynote address by a nationally recognized expert on school climate.
We encourage you to bring school district staff, parents and other concerned members of your school community to this informative event.
