On Any Given Day - Leadership Lessons from Columbine and Beyond - Frank DeAngelis

“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst…a spark that creates ex- 
traordinary results.”(Anon) The tragedy at Columbine redefined the nation. Frank DeAngelis tells his story from the events through the aftermath.
This presentation reveals the leadership lessons he learned in the focus of an international firestorm. Frank’s honest, straight-forward account provides invaluable insights into managing the after-crisis with students, staff members, community members and never ending media attention. A positive attitude and a passion for his job, allowed him to work at Columbine from 1979 to 2014. He shares how he was able to build a community that worked together for his kids; the students at Columbine High School. The takeaways from this presentation should be required reading for every leader in the nation. He is presently serving as a consultant for safety and emergency management for the Jeffco School District in Colorado, and continues to travel nationally and internationally, speaking and consulting.

Improving School Safety through Lessons Learned and Prevention Techniques from the Free School Safety Information Sharing Program - Mia Ray Langheim

This presentation will reflect on current threats and trends that could affect school safety, along with lessons learned from school shootings incidents. Attention will be drawn to resources and ideas to help mitigate these issues. During this presentation, there will also be an 
opportunity to learn about the free School Safety Information Sharing Program which aids in safety through information sharing from local, state, and federal agencies with Illinois schools. 

Mia Ray Langheim was hired to create and manage the School Safety Information program shortly after Sandy Hook in March 2013 by the State of Illinois’ Fusion Center. This is the first program of its kind in the country that is able to share intelligence information with 
administrators and those who need to know in schools and campuses that was previously unavailable to anyone outside of first responders.

The School Safety Information Sharing program’s goal is to share information with those assisting in safety in educational facilities from local, state, and federal agencies about current threats and trends that could affect students, staff, faculty, and facilities. Mia is constantly working on bridging the communication gap and improving education to those in public safety and education to help all involved improve safety decisions. Mia’s background includes over fifteen years of experience in research and large data management, over ten years teaching at the college level, and six years of managing the School Safety and Information Sharing program.
