Best Practices for Developing a New Elementary School
On March 22, 2014 a six-alarm fire destroyed the James Monroe Elementary School in Edison, leaving a community in distress and 500 students without a school. Over the next two years, the board of education undertook many unfamiliar roles, from crisis management in locating and renovating a temporary facility, to becoming expert in insurance negotiations, passing a school-funding referendum, dealing with a myriad of state approvals, managing the school construction budget and adhering to an immovable deadline all while maintaining safety, security for students and repairing a community. Two and half years later, a new facility stands ready to serve students. This session will explore the best practices and perseverance of the board and its team when faced with an unparalleled crisis.

Incident Prevention and Response: A Holistic Approach to School Security
Today’s schools must be prepared for a security incident at any time. A holistic approach to safety demands an easily-managed security system that delivers the protection students and teachers deserve. Video and access control act as deterrents, providing real-time views of the campus. These systems work in conjunction with panic buttons and two-way communication technology, which give administrators and first responders a way to assess threatening situations, and give faculty and staff an active role in their own security. Join us to find out how you can implement these kinds of solutions in your own schools.
