Missouri School Safety Association is launched

MOSSA 2017Missouri School Safety Association is launched On Wednesday, October 4, education and safety officials from across the state met to officially form the Missouri School Safety Association. The purposes of the MOSSA include improving the existing programs and promoting new programs of safety education in cooperation with public and private agencies, & acquiring and disseminating accurate information concerning school safety, security, and health. The association, under the umbrella of the Missouri School Boards’ Association, hopes to bring members from all areas of safety and security together to provide a united voice on safety matters for public schools, private schools, and higher education. Membership in MOSSA is open to current or former school personnel responsible for school safety and other persons interested in school safety and safety education. There is also a membership category for students and for individuals who have a product or service that would be used in the field of school safety. At the organizational meeting, the founding members elected Zac Rantz, chief communication officer & safety coordinator from Nixa Public Schools, as president, and Ben Buening, assistant principal/athletic director & safety coordinator of Lewis County C-1 Schools, as vice president.

Board members elections will take place in December from each of the 11 member regions in the state and those who have joined will be eligible to run and/or vote. For more information, contact Zac Rantz at
