School Safety Roundtable Workshop
Emphasizing School Community
||A roundtable workshop bringing together school administrators, educators, parents,
and students from a variety of communities to gather input on school safety. The
workshop follows the AIA LA Designing Safer Schools discussion from August 23.
||Santa Monica Malibu USD administrators will start the workshop with a presentation
about the district’s new security pilot projects. Moderators will include AIA Los
Angeles, the Association for Learning Environments, and local architecture firms.
||Input from the workshop will guide recommendations on school safety, showing
how school environments for contemporary education can be developed to reduce
the incidence of crime and daily threats. These recommendations will be submitted to
the AIA at the national level and to governmental organizations to guide future policy.
Table topics for breakout groups:
- Steps to prevent and to prepare for both
daily threats and emergencies.
- Measures both to increase the perception of safety
and to make the physical environment safer.
- How would a trauma informed school improve
- What physical and cultural shifts are needed to make
a school welcoming yet safer?
- How do we manage the check-in and pick up
- What can you imagine doing (physical and
programmatic) that engages all community

We want to hear from you, PechaKucha style!
What is PechaKucha? Japanese for “chit-chat,” PechaKucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, allows designers to exchange ideas, share projects and start a dialogue on issues and inspiration in our industry.
This presentation style is a perfect fit for the conference theme this year: Cultivating Courage: Connect, Commit, Create
. We’ll be focusing on projects such as Career Technical Education facilities, NextGen spaces, and charter schools that are committing to different models of educational delivery.
We’re encouraging you to bring your courage, and 20 slides, to be part of the conversation… PechaKucha style.
(Japanese: ぺちゃくちゃ, IPA: [petɕa kɯ̥tɕa])
