Dallas area educators and members of the public can attend the Dallas Bar Association’s 14th annual education symposium on October 14.

The program, at the Belo Mansion from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., aims to bring community leaders together to grapple with how to improve public education in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

For educators, administrators, counselors, and principals, sessions will touch on cybersecurity, resources for students in crisis, active shooter preparedness and response, and feature a conversation with Dallas school district superintendent Michael Hinojosa.

Students can attend programs on what to do in an emergency and how to pursue a legal career.
