With the sheer volume of attention being given to mass shooting incidents in recent weeks and months, there are bound to be incredible developments aimed at further improving our schools’ abilities to proactively and reactively cope with intruders. In order to best protect our students and staff, we believe it to be of the utmost importance to constantly review current literature in this subject.

New physical safeguards, alert systems, camera monitoring, mental health programs, and so on– these will be fine tuned and developed to a higher standard in years to come. Frequently revisiting the state of our schools and comparing them to the national “gold standards” of safety and security will help mark our schools as a national example.
