NextGen School Safety
Conference // 2018
At the NextGen School Safety Conference, school safety coordinators, school resource officers, principals, heads of school, superintendents, board members, student services directors, risk management directors, loss control coordinators, health services coordinators, school nurses and human resources personnel will come together to focus on all aspects of improving the physical safety of students and educators.
Tragedies such as the recent shootings in Townville, SC, Columbus, OH and Mobile, AL – as well as notorious events such as Sandy Hook and Columbine – have brought increased attention to school safety. The 2018 NextGen School Safety Conference will focus on steps that schools can take to prevent tragedies such as Sandy Hook, while also addressing steps that can be taken to prevent “everyday” tragedies – such as a teacher suffering a serious back injury, a teenager suffering a serious concussion or a second grader stepping in front of a school bus.
As important as it is to prevent intruder episodes and other forms of violence, statistics reveal that a student is twice as likely to die from suicide and 5 times as likely to succumb to some form of unintentional injury.
In 2018, the NextGen School Safety Conference will be held in Las Vegas (July 10-13) as part of the Innovative Schools Summit Las Vegas.
Conference attendees receive complimentary access to all Summit sessions (on a space available basis).
