Training Overview

Does school violence put you at risk of being sued? Take these steps to prevent violence and reduce liability.

In the wake of the tragic November 30 Oxford High School shooting in Michigan, schools must reexamine security protocols. The District Attorney is considering charges against the school and individual educators. You need to take immediate steps to reduce the risk of a similar tragedy at your school.

The response to COVID-19 has included ensuring proper ventilation by opening windows and doors. Such steps, however, can create security risks that may be contrary to an overall school safety plan. In light of recent events, school security issues continue to be a significant concern. You need to ensure that the school is not increasing the risk of a security breach.
