We are very excited about this year's KSN Conference which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Wichita. Conference sessions will focus on our theme "Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child"

Many of you remarked how you enjoyed last year's format for the conference. We kept the program similar based upon your feedback. We will have three very special keynote speakers and more than 29 unique sessions for you to attend. Because many of you said it was hard to get to every session, we are also repeating several of the sessions this year.

Child Fatalities in Kansas:A Collaborative Training for Kansas Professionals
Death rates for infants, children, and teens are widely recognized as measures of child well being. However, it is only through a comprehensive review of each child death, that a basis for understanding and identifying children who are vulnerable or at risk can be identified. This training will help professionals in multiple disciplines understand why the Kansas Child Death Review Board exists, and how you as a participant can prevent, investigate, and respond to child fatalities in your community.

This course will provide students with a technical knowledge of composite manufacturing to a level that allows them to better and more proactively identify deficiencies on the factory floor that have safety implications.

Teaching methodology includes online discussions facilitated by subject matter experts, relevant documentation, and audio/visual aids. Depending on prior knowledge and experience, students will spend approximately eight hours per week reviewing materials, participating, in online discussions, and testing their knowledge. Depending on the students skill set and back ground the time investment may fluctuate a bit. The course will conclude with a 2-day hands-on laboratory.
