Teachers Actions To Save Kids (T.A.S.K.)
Technology can fail…Teachers Actions To Save Kids is the solution
The standard procedure for most school settings when there is a dangerous threat is to perform what they call a lockdown. Generally, the building is secured by keeping all persons safely inside, while restricting the movement of any persons in or out of the building. Unbelievably so, most school districts will even post their lockdown procedures on the internet, hence letting someone with criminal intent know what will be done.
While conceptually this “LOCKDOWN” may work great against someone with the intent to abduct a child, we may have to start thinking outside the box when it comes to entrapping a mass shooter inside a building with innocent children huddled in the corner of a classroom, thus making themselves a bigger target for such a malicious act.
It’s disheartening and saddening that we have to address the possibility that something like this can happen, but it light of the recent tragic events, it’s now part of our reality, and nothing spells survival more swiftly than being prepared.
