Are we doing what we say we are doing for school safety, security, and emergency preparedness? Disconnects between board policies and administrative practices can create potential safety and legal liabilities. Disconnects between what we are and are not doing, and what we tell parents, staff, and students we are doing to make schools safer, can create trust and credibility liabilities. Veteran national school safety expert, Dr. Ken S. Trump, shares real-life lessons from his more than 30 years' experience conducting school security and emergency preparedness assessments, and serving as a civil litigation expert witness on school safety lawsuits.Ken earned a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education with a research focus on the intersection of school administrator strategic crisis leadership with school safety communications in highly ambiguous and uncertain contexts.
