The Arlington Committee of 100 fosters open and vigorous discussion of issues involving all facets of community life in Arlington. The Committee's monthly forums are open to all and provide a non-partisan setting in which issues of local, regional, and state interest are addressed by experts, with audience participation in lively Q&A sessions.
The shocking stories come too often on the new: students and teachers facing a shooter in their school. Arlington, to date, has not experienced the worst, but we need to be prepared. As the new school year begins, we will look at how we are keeping our children safe at school. What is the legal environment that regulates what is possible? How are Arlington schools and police preparing and preventing, and how will they respond if the worst occurs? What is it like to be a student today? What are their concerns, and how do students want the community to help keep them safe? Join the Arlington Committee of 100 for our first program of 2018-19 as we explore how best to keep our students safe.
