This event is presented by the Office of the Northwestern District Attorney, David E. Sullivan.
The conference will explore how to cultivate a respectful school climate and will be helpful to anyone interested in promoting a healthy school climate in their communities. This day will outline the legal obligations for school staff at all levels to provide a safe educational environment for their students.
