    Annual Summer Workshop is July 16, 2015
    Our event is only 2 short months away at Eagle Crest.  Register now to attend. Our theme of All Hands on Deck means that we all have a role to play in our schools. 

    This year's topics focus on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.  Even if this isn't one of your primary responsibilities you likely still have some responsibility to assist in times of emergency.  

    The knowledge you gain will help you be a greater asset to your school and community.

    Key presentations are:
    Before an Event: Prevention 
    Kevin Sutherland, Director of Public Safety, Beaverton School District.

    During an Event: Emergency Response
    Scott Anderson, Chief of Police, Troutdale, Oregon

    After an Event: Thriving
    Cheri Lovre, Director, Crisis Management Institute

    We will also continue the successful Discussion Tables from 1-2pm with 5 different topics and tables.
