In November 2018, the Michigan School Safety Task Force released its “Final Recommendations of the School Safety Task Force.” This report is shaping policy at the state level that has begun to show up in legislation (including some passed into law during this past lame duck session). On the federal level, the “Final Report of the Federal Commission on School Safety” presented its report to President Trump on December 18, 2018. Similarly, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission issued its nearly 500 page initial report on January 2, 2019.
Given the legislative and media attention that these reports have and most assuredly generate, the Ottawa Area Secure Schools Network (OASSN) is hosting a special Forum on March 8th, 2019 on “Charting a Course to Navigate Recent School Safety Commission Reports.” The Forum is intended for school leaders (Superintendents, central office, building principals) and other interested OASSN partners. In addition to an overview of each report, the Forum will explore the recently passed School Safety legislation and its implications for future work within schools, law enforcement agencies, and the OASSN as a whole. Overall, the Forum will provide an opportunity for school officials to initiate the design of future strategies for improving school safety in light of these reports.
This event is closed to the public as it pertains to Safety and Security strategies in school. Registrations must be approved by event administrator before being considered final.
