He will discuss social distancing, face covering and other aspects of the COVID crisis relative to students and staff. Mr. Brady will detail how his department works with local emergency services, state and federal agencies, and higher education regulations to provide a safe and secure learning environment for the campus community.
Session 2: Stopping School Violence in Its Tracks
2:00pm ET / 1:00pm CT / 11:00am PT
Many school administrators and teachers in America today feel violence in their schools is inevitable, and their primary course of action is to be prepared to react and respond. The popularity of programs encouraging “counter tactics” or “fighting back” is evidence of this assertion, but is this where we should be placing our priorities? A better answer can be found right in front of us, an answer that is grounded in trusted adult/student relationships coupled with a strategy for timely intervention and management of those on a path to violence. Attendees will leave this program with a clear understanding of how they can play a critical role in preventing violence in their school.
We send more than 56 million students to ~98,000 K-12 public schools every day. Including colleges and universities (~5300) and private schools (~36,500), the number increases to ~76.4 million. These numbers in no way diminish the tragedy and trauma of a school shooting, just provide perspective.
- What are the myths and facts about active shooters?
- What do all those acronyms mean?
- Fear and uncertainty or courage and confidence.
- Active response, the Chesterfield way.
- Raise the alarm, project the danger.
