Face-to-face meetings provide MSBA members with an opportunity to network, exchange ideas and learn about current issues. Meet others from surrounding districts and learn how different districts operate and share your lessons learned.

Teams attending this training will be able to identify, investigate, assess and manage risks and potential dangerous behavior in school. Participants will address building a team, team roles, incorporation into the district crisis plan, policies, school and community engagement, procedures and case management. Following the one day training, teams will be prepared to implement the Missouri Model upon return to their school district.
