These addresses will be followed by presentations of experts on school violence covering key community perspectives: students, teachers, parents, local business, faith-based groups, the media, and other community resources and stakeholders.
Speakers will help attendees develop effective action plans that are unique to their own communities and engage the widest range of local stakeholders to "make our high schools and college campuses safe and secure -- the way learning environments really should be."
An outline of highlights of all presentations is available to participants at sign-up to help prepare for the Q&A sessions and group discussions.
The conference will also include an important hands-on feature -- real-world simulations of community response to school shootings, related tragedies, and global outbreaks.
