PACE Day brought together Thursday more than 150 education, insurance and legal professionals to learn about student safety and liability issues.
They came to Salem from around the state for the informative presentations on current issues and challenges. For many, though, the chance to network with people facing similar situations was just as important.
“It’s nice because I talk to a lot of people on the phone and I can put a name to the face,” said Stephanie Edwards, a member of the safety committee at Reynolds School District.
“PACE Day: Safe and Secure Schools,” which started four years ago, has become a valued source of training and education.
“I come to the PACE days to stay current,” said Nickie Blasdell, Portland Community College risk management. “I find it very informative. It’s also a networking tool to help you stay connected.”
