Stand with Parkland - The National Association of Families for Safe Schools has released a series of five questions that families need to ask to ensure their children’s safety as the school year begins.

We envision these questions to be a starting point for an extended conversation that families can have with their children’s school officials, teachers, and administrators in order to understand the need for a safety plan and the importance of being engaged in discussions about your children’s safety.

  1. Does the school have an active shooter policy?
  2. Does the school train all staff members for active shooter scenarios?
  3. Does the school have a single point of entry (access control) during school hours?
  4. Is there a way students and staff can report threats?
  5. How are parents notified when a threat has been made to the school?
