About the conference

The International School Safety Institute convenes to provide state-of-the-art analysis, training and guidance to maximize school safety and safe-school culture/climate, while ensuring compliance with Federal and State school safety laws and to mitigate liability issues.

The proactive programs discussed in this symposium will give attendees take-aways they can immediately implement to enhance safe culture and climate at their schools. Superintendents, principals, persons involved in school safety and mental health related issues, risk managers, and law enforcement personnel, who deal with school or juvenile related issues, are just some of the people this conference will bring together for a collaborative effort to Learn from the Past to Protect the Future in school safety. We're packing a lot of information into three days, so please register early to reserve your seat.

Looking for mind-expanding presentations by industry leaders? ISSI Conference brings together the foremost leaders in school safety who offer a broad range of thought and insight.


    The school emergency management training and recommendations we have received from School Safety Operations have been the lifeblood of our efforts in equipping our students, teachers, and staff with the information and protocols needed to help keep them safe. Jeff Kaye's pedigree, knowledge, diligence with identifying best practices, and commitment to keeping students safe, makes him not only a respected expert in the field, but a vital resource for administrators from every school, whether it be public, private, primary, secondary, or institutions of higher learning. Thanks to the help of School Safety Operations, our school has made huge advancements in our emergency operations planning and training.
