Designing Safer Schools with PASS

October 26, 2017

Protecting your students and staff is a big responsibility and an increasingly complex undertaking. Security technologies and best practices are evolving quickly in response to changing risk factors. With lives at stake, you need to stay ahead of the learning curve – and we’re here to help you do that.

Join us for a morning of learning and networking, as we explore “what’s next” in school safety. Hear from industry leaders who are setting the standards for security excellence, and discover how local districts are responding with leading-edge solutions that establish safer learning environments.

Featuring guest speaker and keynoter, Guy Grace, director of security and emergency planning at Littleton Public Schools, presenting: Our Schools Have Changed Forever. Mr. Grace will share data and stories from his own school district, together with advice gained from firsthand tragedy.

Additional presenters from NSCA, Pro-Tec Design, and our district clients will cover topics central to your security strategy, including:

  • Understanding K-12 Security Standards, as defined by PASS: Partner Alliance for Safer Schools
  • Constructing a Security Roadmap, and strategies to secure funding
  • Practical vs. theoretical risk: Where to focus first for greatest impact
  • Best Practices in school safety: Real-world case studies of local districts who are leading the way
