IS YOUR DISTRICT'S DATA PROTECTED? ASSESSING YOUR CYBER SECURITY RISK
September 18, 2019
In 2018, NSBA in conjunction with BoardDocs, surveyed K-12 education professionals on their cyber-risk knowledge. Over 480 individuals responded and the results were somber - school boards generally spend little time ensuring their districts’ cyber security programs are effective and student data is safe. Many board members seemed unaware that cyber risk is even part of their fiduciary obligation. Meanwhile, others inadvertently increase their school districts’ cyber risk by relying on unsecured methods of communication.
This webinar is designed specifically for school board leaders and superintendents – to discuss the findings of the report and some specific steps your district can take to improve cyber-risk readiness. Our speakers will share their take on the findings and how the school board community should respond.

Trauma-informed Schools are Safe Schools
June 5, 2019
As the National School Boards Association launches the NSBA Center for Safe Schools, it's important to consider what it means to be a safe school. Safe schools are not the same as trauma-informed schools. Trauma-informed schools are on the rise. There are similarities and differences between the two.
Join us for this engaging discussion about where they intersect and diverge. The qualities and characteristics of being safe and trauma-informed will be explored.
