This is a panel discussion with perspectives from a security consultant and a former K12 security director who have utilized the PASS guidelines and checklist tools. Learn how they utilized these resources in their work and environments to: support risk assessment and development of security plans, develop grant proposals, establish safety/security standards, avoid pitfalls in today’s school safety. 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 full-time safety/security staff. They need a roadmap and guidance from a team of experts. In this session, attendees will discover how to become a trusted advisor.
