There is so much more to school safety than locks - it's looking in the right places!


SFSC 2022

A virtual conference for all school staff that promotes school safety without security!

FORT WORTH, Texas - September 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Dr. Linda Metcalf will again host hundreds of educators and education experts at the 4th Solution Focused School Conference on Oct. 28 & 29, who will share how they have been able to create safer schools without focusing on security. Schools implementing the solution-focused approach - a model that puts the responsibility on students to develop solutions instead of educators to solve problems - have seen significant reductions in discipline referrals and an increase in academic success.

With a shortage of teachers across the U.S. and higher teacher-to-student ratios in classrooms this year, educators are under extreme pressure to engage students so they can learn. Many students are disengaged or feeling isolated, which increases the risks of ill-discipline and disruptive behavior, or worse, more school shootings.

"Many educators aren't properly trained to handle disruptive or disengaged students, so they're either giving up, moving schools or quitting altogether," says Dr. Linda Metcalf, best-selling author of Counseling Toward Solutions, and host of The Solution Focused School Conference. "A child's future depends on a cohesive and inclusive school environment, and that should not be undermined by disruptive behavior, or the inability of educators to manage it."

The fourth installment of the annual conference is themed "Engaged Educators = Exceptional Classrooms", and is bringing together 20 speakers from 5 different countries. They will share solution-focused techniques and case studies of how this evidence-based approach is transformed their schools and other schools around the world.

Studies by the University of Texas found a growing number of schools implementing the solution-focused approach, and where they have increased student engagement, awarded more credits, and reduced drop-out rates.

Delegates will attend the conference online on Oct. 28 & 29, and will earn 18 Continuing Education Units.

"Schools that implement the solution-focused approach transform into a safer environment of exceptional classrooms led by engaged educators," says Dr. Metcalf.

"In those schools, discipline isn't an issue; students and teachers work through their challenges together; there is reduced conflict because previously disengaged students start engaging; students become responsible leaders; and there is great pride in the school's academic success."

Schools that implement the solution-focused approach are safer without focusing on security.

Using this approach will make schools safer, with less disruption and better academic results.

Class A motorists can finally ditch their keys for this innovative security upgrade

WELLSVILLE, Utah - September 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

RVLock, the # 1 best-selling premium handle upgrade for RVers, is excited to announce the launch of the RVLock Atlas, an innovative keyless entry solution for Class A motorists to maximize security and convenience without needing to fumble for keys.

"Customers have been asking us to develop this product for years," said RVLock inventor, founder and CEO Cade Harris. "Developing a universal handle that is simple to install for motorhome doors that vary from rig to rig is extremely complex. We created multiple prototypes before perfecting the Atlas and making it ready for customers to install themselves. RVLock has been America's preferred RV security solution since we invented the keyless handle in 2010. Our customer base expects us to continue to develop quality products - so we took our time to get it right."

The RVLock Atlas joins the existing RVLock Class C Charter, as the world's first Class A entry handle of its kind, making locking and unlocking Class A rigs possible with the push of a button. Combining keyless entry through an integrated keypad, key fob, or smartphone, the RVLock Atlas enables peace of mind for travelers to know their belongings are safe, so they can focus on their next adventure.

For years, owners of Class A motorhomes have been tied to mechanical keys for their luxury RVs. After two years of development, the Atlas stays true to RVLock's roots by providing a keyless upgrade with a moderately simple DIY install.

Additional features of the Atlas include:

•   A rechargeable lithium battery power supply

•   Custom RVLock key codes

•   Steel body construction

•   The RVLock Durō keypad

•   A lifetime warranty

Users can attach a separate product, the RVLock BT Pro+, to convert their handle to support Bluetooth functionality with their smartphones through the RVLock app.

Most RVers do not realize that only a handful of keycodes exist in the RV market. RVLock has solved that security flaw by developing thousands of unique key codes, greatly decreasing the odds of neighboring campers having the same key codes.

"To think the idea of RVLock all started when my tool trailer was broken into is remarkable," Harris said. "Every time we drive down the road and see our keyless handle on a family's trailer, we can't help but feel proud that we are helping protect what matters most to people."

The RVLock Atlas is available for sale exclusively at RVLock.com and will start shipping to customers on Sept. 30, 2022.
