Local high school students came to Seattle
University Wednesday, February 11 for the third annual “Impact! Safe Schools,” a
student leadership conference in which law enforcement officials help students
with strategies they can use to create safer school communities.
This year’s program focused on race equity issues
as well as recognizing cues for threats of violence, especially in social
media. SU Associate Professor of School Psychology Sam Song, who facilitates
the conference, said the topic was selected after the shooting of five
Marysville-Pilchuck students last October. Past conferences have focused on
hazing and bullying.
