49.1 Back to School—Round 2

The start of the school year is akin to New Year’s Day: it’s a new beginning, and you have no idea what the days ahead will bring. For that reason, it’s a great time to re-center on God. I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), to address some ideas on keeping a godly perspective this year. —Dan

48.9 Essential Training Areas for Children 2

Christian schools are most effective when they partner with parents in discipling their children. In Christian School Comment 48.8, Dr. Larry Taylor shared the first part of his model for deliberately training children. I encourage you to read it if you haven’t, and to enjoy this second part. —Dan

Emergency Operations Procedures

I have EMT-Basic training, firearm training, licensed to carry in the school, and just completed a week long training course in New Mexico on Incident Response to Terrorist Bombings. After looking at what was started on our Emergency Operations Procedure manual, I see we have a long way to go. I was wondering if any of you had a team at your school that was in charge of security and emergency preparedness. I would love to look at your manual and compare notes.
