Last week, SafeDefend exhibited the Personal Protection System to a new audience of school board members in Nashville, Tenn. at the National School Board Association (NSBA) annual conference, which also marked the organization’s 75th anniversary. The conference occurred from March 21-23, 2015 and welcomed more than 7,000 school board members, speakers, vendors and exhibitors. It featured a series of resources, such as speakers, sessions and events to help school board members enhance the learning experience in their districts.
According to the NSBA website, the goal of the conference was to bring together education leaders at a time when domestic policies and global trends are combining to shape the future of students. Attendees had the opportunity to gain ideas and strategies through more than 200 programming sessions, workshops, speakers, site visits and exhibitors with cutting-edge content and ideas to support student achievement.
Some featured speakers at the conference included Emmy winning journalist Jane Pauley, Yahoo Tech founder and New York Times columnist David Pogue, and television personality Montel Williams.
Jeff Green, CEO of SafeDefend, was excited to exhibit his cutting edge solution to ensuring safety in the classroom. SafeDefend is the first comprehensive emergency response system which includes a teacher training program, immediate crisis notification and security response systems for classrooms. The training is directed by certified law enforcement trainers and is a non-lethal program that arms teachers with a wide range of response options for escape, trauma response and direct protection.
