8:00am-5:00pm - AWR 148: Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents: Partnering Rural Law Enforcement and the Local School Systems

This Course is an 8-hour, DHS-approved course designed to educate rural law enforcement personnel as well as school administrators and staff on the elements that would allow for an effective response to school-based emergencies. Schools in small, rural, and remote areas across the country account for almost 23 percent of the total student population (more than 11 million students). Rural schools, law enforcement, and other emergency responders are often limited in resources, so it is imperative that all potentially affected parties collaborate on planning, preparing, communicating, responding, and recovering from a school-based incident.

9:00am-3:00pm –How to Prepare & Respond to the Active Shooter

Active shooter events in the United States have required law enforcement agencies and educational facilities small and large to analyze their ability to effectively prepare and respond to these types of events. This powerful interactive presentation will discuss many facets of active shooter response across the spectrum of public safety, school staff, and school security. This presentation will also present preparation and response best practices from law enforcement and education across the nation. This course will provide an overview of the preparation and response responsibilities of law enforcement, fire services, EMS, and school administrative personnel.

A Look Back at the Tornado Disaster in Joplin, MO

2013 Missouri Superintendent of the Year and Finalist, 2013 National Superintendent of the Year

His wide range of experiences as a classroom teacher, building principal, superintendent and a family farmer prepared him to lead his district of 1,100 employees and 7,700 students through the recovery effort that has followed the devastating Sunday, May 22, 2011 tornado that ripped through the heart of Joplin. Graduation ceremonies for Joplin’s Class of 2011 had just concluded at Missouri Southern State University when the tornado struck around 5:41 p.m. destroying or damaging 10 of the 19 buildings in Huff’s district including the high school and leaving over half of his students without a school to return to on Monday, May 23. The Joplin Schools family suffered loss more precious than the buildings though as they lost a staff member and seven students to the storm.
