Due to the COVID-19 environment in which we continue to live and in an effort to do all we can to keep our Convention participants safe and healthy, we feel it prudent to limit Convention registration. At this time, we are at capacity and are maintaining a waiting list. If space becomes available we will move people from the waiting list to active Convention registrant status.
To get on the waiting list please contact Nancy Propfe at email@example.com.
If you have questions, please contact Lisa Steimer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-571-7446.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
School Safety and Concerns
A resource we want to offer to boards to share with your Superintendent or administration is www.nasponline.org.
There you will find information regarding talking with children about violence, school safety and death should it be needed.
The Commission on Children has added a resource center to their website that you and the parents and teachers with whom you interact may find useful:
The Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Education - Resources for Schools to Prepare for and Recover from Crisis
National Association of School Psychologist- http://www.nasponline.org/resources/crisis_safety/terror_general.aspx
The National Child Traumatic Stress Network
- Psychological Impact of the Recent Shooting
- Parent Guidelines for Helping Youth after the Recent Shooting
- Talking to Children about the Shooting
- Tip Sheet for Youth Talking to Journalists about the Shooting
