Partnering for Safe Schools:
A Safety and Security Summit


Following an incident of school violence, a variety of ideas emerge for how best to prevent future tragedies. One underlying element generally agreed upon is that collaboration between educators and law enforcement is essential.

In an effort to facilitate that collaboration, the Fund invites member organizations and their local law enforcement agencies to gather for a daylong event to gain practical tips for keeping their schools safe learning and working environments.

Featured speakers come from backgrounds in law enforcement, emergency management, school law and more.


  • Threat assessment and reporting
  • Mental health and special education considerations
  • School architecture
  • Mitigation strategies and recovery plans
  • Community involvement in emergency management


When: Thursday, September 13, 2018

Where: Austin Marriott North, 2600 La Frontera Blvd., Round Rock, TX 78681

Suggested audience: assistant superintendents, business managers, emergency managers, first responders, local law enforcement, operations managers, risk managers, school law enforcement, and superintendents

Open to Fund members at no cost


The event will be offered in person in the Austin area as well as virtually. Members participating remotely are encouraged to do so together with their local law enforcement and first responders.

Online registration will open in July 2018.
