HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raptor Technologies, the market leader in U.S. K-12 school safety solutions, will host a live webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019 at 1 p.m. CST with Max Schachter, founder of Safe Schools for Alex and father of one of the 17 victims killed in the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018. In this live webinar, Schachter will share details of what happened that day, what lessons can be learned, and key strategies for prevention. To register for this free webinar, consumers and educators can go to www.go.raptortech.com/Max-Schachter.
“School safety has become one of the biggest concerns for educators, parents, and students,” said Eileen Shihadeh, senior vice president, Raptor Technologies. “It’s imperative for us as a community concerned with school safety to come together, share our learnings, and discuss a better path forward. Raptor Technologies is glad to be able to provide a vehicle to do just that through the Raptor School Safety Webinar Series.”
The Safe Schools for Alex foundation was initiated to support the creation of national school safety best practices and to establish a foundational school safety implementation model. Since the death of Max’s son, Alex, Schachter has been influential in driving policy change at the highest levels of U.S. government to improve school security and crime prevention. He is also helping lead additional commissions and committees of interdisciplinary members, politicians, and subject matter experts to drive consensus on challenging school safety issues and obstacles. Once the national school safety best practices are created, Safe Schools for Alex will issue grants to schools nationwide to assist in hardening their structures, so they can better protect themselves from these horrible tragedies in the future.
