About the Summit

Please join recognized experts from around the state and nation as we discuss best practices for student and educator safety and creating safe school environments. With a theme of School Safety – Prevention and Preparedness, this statewide Summit is designed for school safety teams, educators, school nurses, mental health professionals, law enforcement, and emergency and disaster preparedness coordinators.

The primary objective is to assist you in developing or advancing your School Safety Plan(s) in accordance with the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI) Montana Safety and Security Guidelines Safety Rubric. You will learn, interact, and network with your colleagues and key stakeholders from around the state. You will bring home resources to continue to fund, develop, improve, and advance your own school safety plans. Continuing education credits are available.

With our united goal of ending violence in our schools, this Summit is developed in association with the Jeremy Bullock Memorial Trust, the Montana Governor’s Office, and the Montana OPI.
