Lessons Learned from Sandy Hook & Other Violent Incidents in Schools
Rick Shaw
This presentation will combine overviews of the Report of the State’s Attorney on the Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Student Survey data from nearly 6,500 students and schools across the nation and other recent post-event reports. Lessons learned from Sandy Hook and data from the Student Survey expose many of the same common gaps and dangerous disconnects.  School Administrators and Safety/Threat Assessment Team members are not aware of the hidden costs, soaring liabilities and mounting consequences or the 6 essential steps of preventing that must be followed to improve student safety for all students and all staff. Every school has at-risk individuals who could be on a path to violence…don’t miss this presentation. 

 This session will help you:

  • Identify the 6 essential steps to proactive prevention vs. reacting and damage control
  • Understand key strategies for effective training and ensuring situational awareness
  • Assess common gaps and dangerous disconnects exposed in post-tragedy reports
  • Improve collaboration by collecting the dots, assessing the dots and connecting the dots
  • Overcome gaps and failures in connecting the dots across silos and locations
  • Review the “gold standard” for creating multi-disciplinary threat assessment teams
  • Utilize lessons learned to prevent liabilities, lawsuits, headlines, tragedies and other incidents
  • Clarify of FERPA/Privacy misunderstandings that can lead to costly and significant liabilities


Rick Shaw - Threat Assessment & Prevention Expert

Rick Shaw is the Founder, CEO and CDO of Awareity Inc. – a developer of innovative, web-based incident-prevention platforms for students, employees and communities. He has more than 20 years of experience performing numerous types of assessments (threat, compliance, physical, information security, social media and others), with a focus on prevention processes across multiple industries and types of threats.  Rick's experiences  -- combined with extensive research using post-event reports, lawsuits and surveys -- has helped expose the most dangerous disconnects and potential liabilities facing schools (including new threats related to social media).

In addition to working with organizational leaders, Rick has been called upon to speak at numerous conferences in the United States, Canada, South Korea and Japan for his expertise in safety (student, employee, third-party, community, etc.) and prevention.  He utilizes evidence-based data from hundreds of post-event reports and extensive research to expose each point where proper preventive tactics were possible in most incidents and tragedies.
