Workshop A

PASS Guidelines Updates: Helping Administrators and Security Directors Effectively Evaluate and Prioritize Safety and Security Investments

Today’s school safety and security challenges are multi-faceted and complex. There is no single action that will, by itself, make our schools safe. Protecting students and staff is a tremendous moral and legal responsibility that requires a comprehensive approach to these challenges.

Security management is a core responsibility of school administrators, who face daily pressure to ensure that students and staff are protected, often without significant security expertise or the benefit of full-time safety/security staff. When it comes to security, school administrators are faced with two difficult questions: 1) What do we do? and 2) How do we prioritize?

The PASS Guidelines and Checklist were developed to provide administrators and security directors with the means to effectively evaluate safety and security infrastructure already in place, prioritize investments and maximize safety and security gained by leveraging available resources.

The Guidelines and Checklist identify and classify leading practices for securing K-12 facilities in response to the urgent needs identified by the educational community.

Workshop B

After School Hours: Event Security and Emergency Preparedness

Preparing for emergencies during the school day is already challenging. Things can get more complicated when a crisis occurs at a time when the front office is not staffed or the supervising adults are volunteers or from an outside organization.

After school programs, sporting events, political events and polling place usage are just a few of the challenging times when typical emergency plans may not be adequate. In addition to immediate needs, some states have special requirements for this type of planning.

Participants will learn how to meet various planning requirements for special events while developing a logical approach to emergency planning.

This workshop will not only better prepare you for emergencies but can make special events and after hours activities run more smoothly and with less disruption. Attendees will also work on a template for a site safety plan for special event and after hours planning for emergencies.
