Effective Leaders Communicate Effectively

The CIO for Schools And Families Engaged, Scott Huse, invested time on April 30th to offer a keynote and workshop for the AR PTA leaders.  The workshop was extremely interactive discussing the Myth Busters: 1. All fathers and families are involved in education 2. It will never happen here, regarding safe school environments.  During membership luncheon, Scott had the opportunity to train all the conference attendees on their personality styles and communication.  Watch the picture video below and enjoy the sounds from Hooooooog country!!  Woooo Piiiiig Sooooooie!!

Crisis Management for School-based Incidents Seminar

(Sorry about the poor audio quality on the second half of this video.  Turn up your speakers when you can't hear us.)

We had the unique opportunity to host this Homeland Security seminar.

1.  Is your school/district prepared for a school-based incident even beyond an active shooter scenario?

2. Does your school have the attitude and disciplines in place, that noone enters our building or goes near our students unless they have checked in the front office and have a purpose for their visit?
