Last week I wrote about a webinar that I’ll be presenting on February 27th – Code Changes Affecting Classroom Security.  Hundreds of people have signed up already…hopefully we don’t run out of space!

Someone asked whether I would be offering continuing education credits from the International Code Council (ICC) in addition to the credits from AIA and DHI, and the answer is YES!  I have registered as an ICC education provider and submitted the webinar for approval.  It is pending since it can take up to 10 days to receive confirmation, but it should be all set before the 27th.

A few people have told me that they signed up for the webinar but did not receive a confirmation email with the link to join.  If you have that problem (check your spam folder), please leave a comment in the reply box below and I’ll check it out.


If you’re in the Kansas City area, Allegion is hosting a school security conference on February 26th, featuring Mark Williams, Vice Chair of The Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS).  This summit is ideal for school administrators, facility managers, and security personnel, as well as fire marshals and law enforcement officers.

Mark will discuss the PASS guidelines and assessment/ checklist tool and how to apply them to fit the needs of a school district. Topics include layered/ tiered security, assessing the current conditions, options and best practices for a tiered approach, and available tools and resources.
