On this week's School Safety Free Period we'll explore more bus problems, discuss the unintended consequences of anonymous tip lines, and review some random events where perception wasn't reality. Join us!
In recent days we've seen lots of media attention and public outcry about two contrasting interpretations of school safety awareness. In what ways are controversies about school shooting sweatshirts or Sandy Hook Promise's "gut punch" videos furthering the school safety conversation? And what are the implications for teachers and administrators as we struggle to keep our students safe from all kinds of hazards?

As we start a new school year, parents', teachers', and students' thoughts turn to the threat of a school shooting. In just the last 2 weeks there have been several thwarted plots, and a shooting at a high school football game in Alabama. Yet statistics show us that kids are more likely to die by drowning or a bicycle accident than a school shooting. Can both of these contradictory notions be true at once? Join us for a lively discussion of the active shooter paradox.
Let’s take a moment to examine some of the most ridiculous incidents of the past school year, not just to acknowledge the absurdities with which schools must deal, but more importantly to reflect on the important take aways for all schools.
How on earth did we get from point A to point B? Misguided attempts to fix school safety problems results in the use of dogs to eliminate school shootings, door-less bathrooms, and setting the baseball field on fire.
Bus drivers gone wild? School bus safety concerns continue with a drunk guy riding the bus, and drivers with unsolvable problems.
