The CIO for S.A.F.E. TEAM, Scott Huse, was recently published in Campus Safety magazine.  If your school already has or is planning to have a volunteer background check policy, review Scott's article and pass it on to your school leadership.  There are many points to consider when devising this type of policy.

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?
