Delegates will gather to hear the latest in best practices from Subject Matter and First Responder Experts on issues facing our schools and campuses. The Presenters will be using the latest information with hands-on components and activities that will allow the delegates to bring back to their schools and colleges practical information they can use immediately to keep their students and staff safe and give the foundations to strategize, collaborate and network to further grow the safety initiatives in their communities. There will be time for delegates to meet and share with others what they are doing at their own schools to improve and enhance safety.
Delegates will meet with like-minded professionals who come to share how they incorporated these initiatives on school safety and how they developed best practices for their school communities. This will enable them to tailor and deploy these initiatives to best suit their own needs.
Research shows efforts by parents, administrators, teachers, students, and community members can reduce safety concerns and improve the overall school environment. One of the key concerns for many is stopping school violence. This requires multiple prevention strategies addressed by schools and colleges partnering with their First Responders. Prevention efforts reduce risk factors and help organizations effectively respond to acts of violence.
The National School Response Conference (NSRC) is recognized as one of the premier conferences dedicated to School Safety and Security. The conference addresses the topics of school shootings, bullying, dating violence, vandalism, gang activity, alcohol, drugs, bomb threats, child abuse, school massacres, and catastrophic events such as pandemic outbreaks, tornadoes, terrorist attacks, and technological intrusions.
The program agenda for the conference and exhibition is collaboratively designed by an advisory board of School Safety Officers, Subject Matter, and First Responder Experts to provide world-class content. There will be collaborative learning and focused relationship building activities to provide networking opportunities to aid with short and long term adoption of the initiatives. Along with dynamic keynoters, VIP panels and breakout sessions there will be a focus on attendee interaction and moderated small group discussions.
