Southeast 2018 District Meetings
Even though I know you're very busy, please be sure to SAVE the DATE for your fall district meeting. These meetings are getting better and better...just ask someone who attended this past fall! This year, we plan on taking 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 to it—goes from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with lunch to follow—also free! See the list of dates and locations below and write the date for YOUR meeting on your calendar! Watch for registration information to come this summer!
