I wrote "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About School But Were Sued First" when the lawyers' organization, TASA (Technical Advisory Services for Attorneys), requested it. As a School Safety Expert, I have worked and collaborated with TASA (Blue Bell, PA) for over 10 years. I testify in courts nationwide and also speak at professional association conferences: Association of California School Administrators; California Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance; National School Resource Center; and for the Jodi Solomon Speakers Bureau, in Boston, Massachusetts. FOXNews asked me to join news anchor Megyn Kelly in a discussion on school safety.
I am a former Director of Child Welfare and Attendance for a public school district. In addition to attorneys, I wrote this article for teachers and administrators at public, private, secular, and parochial schools, as well as at military academies (I was an expert in a matter involving the Valley Forge Military Academy, in PA). I trust that "Everything You Wanted to Know About School Safety But Were Sued First" contains both "teachable moments" and "actionable items" that perhaps are well within your scope, depth, and capacity to achieve. More school safety articles are forthcoming.
Wishing you the very best as you endeavor to enhance the safety and welfare of your students!
