Rescheduled School Safety Meeting Tonight

Clarkstown School District and town law enforcement officials will attend meeting to discuss and hear recommendations for improving school safety


Clarkstown Assistant School Superintendent John LaNave said the school security meeting originally scheduled for January 28 has been rescheduled for tonight at 6:30 p.m. at district offices. The public is welcome to attend and observe but speaking opportunities are limited to the 50 invited participants. LaNave asked other interested residents to submit their ideas by email to jlanave@ccsd.edu.

LaNave will begin the meeting with an overview of the district’s current security and training programs. The invited speakers will share their thoughts on new measures and enhanced procedures or equipment. LaNave expects to conclude the session by asking participants which specific ideas the district should research for feasibility and cost.

So they reschedule it for the same day they announce it has been rescheduled. TOO Typical behavior.. why not announce all school closings the day of a snow storm or heavy rain.. or would that be too inconvenient.

http://www.rocklandtimes.com/2013/02/21/school-lock-down-is-not-a-safety-plan/ Fresh ideas are necessary. There is no need in turning a school into a TSA experience to achieve security. A safety plan that does not create deterrence or develop counter-measures is a disaster waiting to happen. Any plan that sounds like having your kids sit in a burning building until the raging fire or firemen find them is what we have now. Family safety is a family decision. Parents entrust the lives of their children to authorities. If it is a lock down sale; do not ignore your own instincts that demand you put distance between danger and your child. Counter the argument that an escape and evasion plan would create chaos and confusion with an explanation of how sitting ducks plan worked for the victims or would those parents approve of doing it again. This is serious, so pay attention.
