Seminar focuses on school crisis prevention and response

Because school security is such a timely subject in the region and nationally, the Pittsburg State University College of Technology is opening up a Four-State Technology Conference seminar on crisis prevention and response to professionals in area school districts.

Randall Listrom, president of Listrom and Associates, LLC, will deliver three hours of instruction on "Preventing and Responding to Crisis" on Thursday, Nov. 16. The class will run from 1:30-4:30 p.m. in S102 of the Kansas Technology Center.

Listrom's class is just one of the events scheduled for the 64th annual Four-State Technology Conference, which is designed for the professional development of technology teachers, school-to-career teachers, administrators and counselors. The conference runs Nov. 16-17 in the Kansas Technology Center on the PSU campus.

Dr. John Iley, chairman of the Department of Technology Studies, said opening the crisis prevention and response class to a wider audience was driven by the timeliness of the subject matter and the belief that it might benefit a wide range of people in the education community. Interested professionals need not register for the entire Four-State Conference, but should contact Lori Hall at 620-235-4365 to be put on the seminar-only attendance list.
