2018 Fall District Meetings
Please be sure to SAVE the DATE for your fall district meeting. This year, we plan to take a deep dive into the subject of SCHOOL SAFETY. This issue encompasses much more than the current political climate and media would have us believe (i.e. gun control, etc.). We will answer the question: What does it mean to be "safe" in a Christian school?
A Christian worldview approach to safety views this important matter holistically:
- Emotional Safety - what does it mean for a student to be emotionally safe in a school setting?
- Physical Safety - what must a school provide (policies, procedures, facilities. etc.) to ensure physical safety?
- Spiritual Safety - how can a Christian school provide an environment of spiritual safety which allows students a safe environment to wrestle with their spiritual condition, belief, and faith? Is it safe to doubt here?
Plan to arrive around 9am for a coffee/fellowship time, then the formal meeting-which has a Socratic seminar style feel. The meeting goes from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. You can choose to purchase lunch from the host school ($10) or bring your own lunch. See the list of dates and locations below and RSVP, as soon as possible.
