From 2016 to 2018, over 84% of school bond campaigns listed “improving school safety” as one of their top three construction and campaign goals -- yet, NBC News recently reported that over $2.7 billion has been spent on school safety without making schools much safer. 

How you can prove your schools will be safer without wasting valuable funds?  

This will be one of the important topics explored at Tech & Learning’s new event, “Making the Most of Your School Funding,” taking place in Austin on April 23-24, 2019, hosted in partnership with SchoolBondFinder. Security expert Sean Spellecy will provide guidelines that can help ensure you meet your district safety goals. He’ll share real-life experiences from other administrators who used this process, physical and operational security assessments that allow you to measure your school safety before, during, and after construction, security tool trends that can save your district money, and recommendations on what type of security systems, contractors, and training you need to keep your schools safe.

Other topics will include: creating flexible learning environments, developing an affordable, effective school safety plan, budgeting for innovation, tips for securing school bond dollars, and more.

There is no charge for those we accept. The content is ideal for superintendents, CTOs, CFOs, facilities managers, safety and security officers, and others looking to network with colleagues to share best practices in making the most of school funding. As always, we’ll build in plenty of time for networking and opportunities to grow your PLN.
