Event description

Description

On November 2nd (Calgary) and 3rd (Edmonton) AISCA will be hosting full day leadership workshops.

Each of the days will feature three key sessions. The first will be an update from AISCA that will address current initiatives being pursued within the association as well as an update on province wide initiatives (curriculum, assurance review, leadership standards, etc.).

The second session will feature a presentation from Alberta’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Jill Clayton. The focus of this portion of the day will be on how the Personal Information Protection Act applies to independent schools, key privacy violations to avoid, supports available to schools from the privacy office, and some new privacy initiatives that school leaders should be aware of.

For the afternoon sessions Pat Rivard, B.S.W., B.ED M.ED, Associate Superintendent, Palliser Regional Schools; a trainer from the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment & Trauma Response will lead schools in an introduction to Violence Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA).

This will include:

  • Early Development of the VTRA Model
  • Definitions of Threat Assessment vs. Risk Assessment
  • Primary Variables and Concepts
  • Multiple Pathways to Serious Violence
  • Violence Prevention through the Identification of Pre-Incident Indicators
  • Human Systems Dynamics as a Risk Enhancer and Risk Reducer (Open vs. Closed Systems)
  • Formal VTRA Protocol Establishment

Depending on school interest, AISCA may be able to coordinate further training for school personnel on this topic in the spring of next year.

The day will begin in Calgary at 8:30 with registration, networking and refreshments. Presentations begin at 9 am. Lunch is provided.

The Calgary Leadership Workshop is being held in the Concorde Ballroom at the Best Western Port O’Call. The entrance to the Concorde Ballroom is outside the hotel to the far left of the lobby. There is free parking at the hotel.
