Are Our Children Safe at School?
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
The shocking stories come too often on the news: 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.
