Facilities, Transportation and Safety Conference & Exhibits

October 24-25, 2019
Holiday Inn Harrisburg/Hershey, Grantville PA


PASBO is pleased to announce the 2019 Facilities, Transportation and Safety Conference & Exhibits. This year’s conference will be held Thursday, October 24 and Friday, October 25 at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg/Hershey, Grantville, PA.  We have combined three critical areas in school business to provide greater content and networking opportunities. 

  • School facility management affects teaching and learning, student and staff health, day-to-day building operation, and the long-range fiscal health of the entire education organization. Three specialized facilities tracks will provide targeted programming for facilities managers/directors, custodial supervisors/trainers and SchoolDude product users.
  • Transporting students to and from school is a critical mission. The transportation track will provide knowledge and tools to increase safety, maximize efficiencies, assist with reporting requirements and respond to emerging issues.
  • School safety is an increasingly growing concern in today's world. 
  • Facilities Directors
  • Facilities personnel including custodian supervisors/trainers, head custodians
  • Transportation Directors
  • School Safety Personnel
  • Business Managers and Superintendents with an interest in facilities, safety and transportation management
Through your attendance at the conference, you will
  • Learn proven techniques from experienced practitioners
  • Gain ideas to create efficiencies and reduce costs
  • Exchange challenges and solutions with your peers
  • Build a network of contacts across the state
