After an insightful first day at the Symposium, we will depart from the Gaylord Texan to enjoy an educational and social event offsite hosted by Carroll ISD. Relax as we take a short bus ride from the Gaylord Texan to Carroll Middle School where you will meet our hosts, enjoy food & refreshments, network with your peers, and participate in a town hall meeting led by our host panelists.
In this special offsite event, executive leaders from CISD and community leaders from the City of Southlake will share and discuss the development and implementation of the CISD Operation #SAFEdragon Program which includes an armed officer program, increased use of advanced technologies such as emergency alert and visitor management software, and other initiatives to improve safety and security within CISD and promote emergency preparedness among students and staff. In this informative session, attendees are encouraged to ask questions which will be addressed by the panelists.
