2022 Regional Meeting program description: School safety remains a focus of districts across the country. Following the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, leaders at the local and state levels are assessing every aspect of their plans, procedures, training, facility security, mental health, the roles of law enforcement, etc. KSBA welcomes our friends from the Office of the State School Security Marshal (OSSSM) to explain their mission and the supports available to Kentucky districts in maintaining compliance with state regulations and best practices. This interactive session will include roundtable discussions facilitated by KSBA and OSSSM staff, focusing on the important role of school board teams. Like with previous regional meetings, insights shared by members will directly inform future KSBA resources and trainings.
