Association, and the Virginia Risk Sharing Association (VRSA) to offer the 2023 Virginia School Safety Training Forum. This year’s Forum  will be held in Hampton, Virginia on July 24-27, 2023. The Forum will feature engaging keynote speakers and interactive workshops for as many as 1000 participants in the fields of school and division leadership, school security, law enforcement, PreK-12 counseling and mental health, and others with a role in ensuring schools are safe places to work and learn. 

The theme of the Forum, “Fostering a Culture of Trust, Collaboration, Awareness, and Safety,” highlights the critical importance of relationship building among all stakeholders, particularly as a result of the challenging past three years for our students and school communities. Trust that we know how to respond appropriately in an emergency, ensuring that we are fully participating in drills and providing necessary support, that the school culture encourages connection and support, and building partnerships to ensure a safe and supportive school environment, have never been more important.
