Town Hall: Let's talk about school safety

Several options to secure schools have been weighed formally and informally from adding metal detectors, placing more armed officers in schools and arming school teachers themselves.

School safety is on the minds of school communities across the country looking to find the most effective way to keep schools secure.

The topic of school safety reached a boiling point in the days after the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, which claimed 17 lives and has been compounded by a number of school threats, including numerous reported threats here in Central New York.

Several options have been weighed formally and informally from adding metal detectors, placing more armed officers in schools and arming school teachers themselves.

On Thursday, May 3, the merit of those ideas and potentially others will be discussed thoroughly during our "Safe at School" Town Hall hosted at Liverpool Middle School.

The town hall will feature a mix of local leaders, law enforcers, school officials and community members, including:

  • Dr. Mark Potter – Liverpool School District Superintendent
  • Dr. Jaclyn Schildkraut – SUNY Oswego Professor, Expert on Mass Murder & School Shootings
  • Scott Armstrong – former NRA Spokesman, NRA Certified Instructor, Voice for 2nd Amendment
  • Ellie Brown – Phoenix School Resource Officer
  • Renee Rider - Associate Commissioner for the Office of School Operations and Management (The State Ed Dept.)

You can also participate in the discussion. We have seats available for the community to attend and participate in Thursday's live discussion at 7 p.m.

If you would like to attend, you can register for a seat here.
