Tips for Achieving Capital Forecasting Success
Presented by Herb Crawford – Director of Sales, SchoolDude

Every part of your campus will need repair or replacement at some point in the future. These projects can range anywhere from small work orders to multimillion dollar contracts.  Putting off repairs can result in bigger, more costly problems down the line. With long-range capital planning you can make capital decision with confidence, and ensure necessary resources are in place when the time comes. This presentation will discuss:

  • The fundamentals of capital forecasting and the correlation between facility condition, asset life and student performance.
  • How to improve your organization's efficiency through using capital forecasting software.
  • How to pull reports that can help you gain visibility into critical areas, allowing you to make better decisions - and which reports your peers use most often to justify budget and staffing.

LED Lighting, What’s the Big Deal?

LED lighting has transformed the lighting industry in recent years creating opportunities for energy savings and improving learning and patient environments.  Discover the differences between legacy and LED lighting today and understand where the technology is headed in the near future.


See Something, Say Something
Presented by James Marcella- Axis Communications

The popular public safety campaign “See Something, Say Something" has acted as force multiplier urging everyone to take an active role in protecting their community. Video surveillance systems play a role in this force multiplier equation as well. But while it excelled as a tool to “see something," historically it lacked the audio capabilities to “say something." Those days, however, are numbered. New audio-augmented systems are significantly increasing the effectiveness of surveillance systems to deter crime, and improve public safety.

In this session attendees will learn about how to increase the effectiveness of video surveillance systems by:
• Increasing the deterrence by adding audio capabilities
• Navigating the legal mine field of adding audio to your systems
• Understanding the technical skills for successful deployment (Hint: you already have them)
• Implementing “Audio Analytics" to proactively identify threats


Crisis Management & Planning for the Mobile Age
Presented by Herb Crawford – Director of Sales, SchoolDude

As professionals in the education industry, your top priority is the safety of students, faculty, and staff.  Although you may feel your current crisis plans are adequate, it’s important to be aware of the restrictions and problems that may arise from purely analog communication systems. Binder-based plan documents can be useful for training purposes, but in the event of an actual emergency, when time is the most precious resource you have, do all staff and faculty have access to the binder, poster or emergency flipchart?  What can you do to keep your plans relevant?

Crisis Management & Planning for the Mobile Age will compare efficacy of paper safety plans versus mobile safety plans, identify gaps and breakdowns in traditional safety plans, demonstrate "duty of care" in an increasingly mobile society and guide you through the design and execution of a more comprehensive crisis management strategy.

Using Federal Tax Credits to Fund School Renovations, Equipment, Technology, Energy Conservation and/or Educational Programs
Presented by Art Stellar, Ph.D.; VP, National Education Foundation

School district personnel and vendors will learn about the $400 million annual Qualified Zone Academy Bond  (QZAB) Federal tax credit program. These are 25 year NO INTEREST bonds which do not require a referendum vote, except for a few states. Eligibility requirements, regulations, planning tools and  the application process will be described. Funds may be used for building renovations, equipment, technology, energy efficiency, renewable energy and for educational programs. In addition, attendees of this session will learn how the National Education Foundation supplements these funds with a match contribution of between 10% and 50% of the total value in the form of educational software for students, staff and parents. School personnel with long term facility plans or lists of needs may be able to complete applications onsite. Vendors may be able to correlate clients’ needs with QZAB, thus, providing funding to resolve problems.
