Seminar focuses on school crisis prevention and response

November 07, 2006 12:00AM

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.
