Safe Schools Week is nearly here, and we have a fantastic webinar coming up next Wednesday – October 14th from 2-3 PM EDT:

Preparing for a post-pandemic world: A practical guide to balancing school safety and security

Schools are getting guidance and advice on safety from many sources, but some recommendations are conflicting. How do you balance safety with security? Does your security plan prepare for civil disturbances? These plans and new requirements have associated costs. Where can you get funding? We’ll cover all this and more during our expert panel discussion with our panelists:

  • Paul Timm, Vice President of Facility Engineering Associates
  • Dr. Paula Love, known as the Funding Doctor
  • Guy Grace, Chairman of the Advisory Committee for Partner Alliance for Safer Schools, former Director of Security and Emergency Planning for Littleton Public Schools

This webinar will be especially beneficial for school superintendents, school administrators, chief information officers, directors of IT, directors of facilities, and heads of security, so please share this webinar information with anyone who would benefit from attending.
