Last year's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 children and six adults dead stunned the nation and forever changed the way we view school security. However, after a year of political rhetoric and wrangling over gun control and efforts by some districts to loosen restrictions on the carrying of firearms by school staff members and administrators, just how far have we come in terms of bolstering security measures within schools themselves? In this webinar, we'll examine some of the best practices for responding to active shooter incidents, as well as discuss the preventative steps you can take to keep students and teachers safe.
