Still time to register
for workshops, safety seminar

Details of the school safety seminar are available online here.
With six weeks remaining until the 85th Joint Annual Conference, there is still time to secure registration for one of IASB’s pre-conference workshops or the half-day school safety and security seminar.

Several workshops have sold out, but five of the Pre-Conference Workshops still have openings. That includes four full-day workshops: The Basics of Governance, Professional Development Leadership Training (PDLT) and Performance Evaluation Reform Act (PERA) Training for School Board Members, Leading Leaders: The Job of the Board President, and Monitoring District Performance: Saying What We Mean & Doing What We Say; and one half-day workshop: Get Your Message Out: Your Role in Crafting an Effective Public Image (both A.M. and P.M.).

All IASB workshops require additional registration and fee, and will take place on Friday, Nov. 17, at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.

IASB is also hosting for a second year a Safety and Security Seminar called “Preparation for School Safety.”

The Friday morning event will feature representatives from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Illinois School and Campus Safety Program, local school district safety officials, and
the keynoter, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, a former U.S. Army Ranger, West Point psychology professor, and author. Since his retirement from the Army, Grossman has provided training for military, law enforcement, mental health providers, and school safety organizations. Grossman will share his research knowledge on the best tactics to safeguard our schools and students.

The school safety and security seminar requires additional registration and fee and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
