Fatal Friday Night Lights: A Case Study of Response and Recovery
Shelley Muto, Director of Pupil Services, Jeannette City School District
Matthew Jones, Superintendent of Schools, School District of the City of Jeannette
On Friday, September 6, 2019, the small urban School District of the City of Jeannette experienced an event they were seemingly unprepared for. In the waning moments of the extremely popular Friday night Jeannette Jayhawk football game, a fatal shooting took place at the stadium. Both the suspect and victim were very well known parents and citizens in the city, and the incident sent shockwaves through the small community. The Jeannette City School District’s response to the incident established an immediate tone for recovery, and, although the district had never trained for an event involving the population and location, the transferable skills from other trainings and protocols allowed district personnel to deal with an open-air, after-school, large-scale event involving the student body, visiting students and patrons attending the event. The session will provide an overview of the violent incident, administration and emergency services immediate response, and School District timeline of actions during the initial 72 hours and the plan for after care and support services in the following days and weeks. Presenters will share lessons learned including revisions to the emergency operations plan, training protocols, support services for students, staff and families and the unique circumstances of being tasked with response while in the presence of family.

Guy Bliesner, School Security Analyst, Idaho Office of School Safety and Security
Many educational institutions are anticipating Fall opening with college students back on campus and schools back in-person in the classroom.

Many of these immediate challenges can be addressed by understanding the CDC recommendations, the latest ASHRAE standards, and upgrading infrastructure or even implementing new technology to reduce health and safety risks. This session will focus on reducing the risk of COVID-19 and improving the air quality in educational environments, as well as discuss the benefits of upgrading infrastructure to make your campus smarter and healthier for years to come.
