On September 20, the AIU and Project SEEKS SES held its second virtual community of practice meeting. The meeting revolved around violence intervention. 

Each community of practice meeting will focus on a shared topic of interest between school district, higher education and community partners. Each meeting will be facilitated by the Project SEEKS SES coordinator, Shannon Fagan, in conjunction with a school district/university partner and subject matter expert.

During this meeting, Sto-Rox superintendent Megan Van Fossen spoke about the district's V.I.B.E. (Violence Intervention Building Empowerment) team, a trio of people tasked with violence intervention. To read more about the V.I.B.E team, click here and here.
