Providing students with a safe and secure learning environment is a top priority for Ste. Genevieve R-II School District. The Missouri School Boards' Association's Center for Education Safety (CES) is sponsored by the Missouri State Board Association (MSBA) and dedicated to emergency planning, preparedness, and safety and security in Missouri schools. Dr. Paul Taylor, Assisstant Superintendent, and Dr. Scott Mercer, Middle School Principal, attended the 2018 Safe Schools and Colleges Conference this June. Dr. Mercer is also serving on the MSBA Board of Directors as a representative for Region C. Highlights from the conference are illustrated in the 2018 Safe Schools and Colleges Conference Promo video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kaXnZKkJbE.
