School Safety Initiatives: Social Media Threat Assessment Training

Max Schachter, a safe school advocate and father of a victim of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, is hosting social media threat assessment webinars in collaboration with Safer Schools Together. These webinars are designed for law enforcement officers, school resource officers (SROs), and school staff to learn how to assess and respond to threats on social media platforms. The training covers topics such as identifying social media threats, understanding the impact of social media on school safety, applying digital threat assessment principles, and navigating different social media platforms.

Max Schachter’s advocacy for safe schools began after the tragic loss of his son. He was appointed to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, which investigated the shooting and made recommendations for improving school safety.

In addition to social media threat assessment training, Max emphasizes the importance of implementing mobile panic button apps like SchoolGuard to reduce notification and response times during active shooter incidents. He believes that national programs like Alyssa’s Law, which mandates mobile panic buttons, can help protect students and save lives.

To support Max’s mission and enhance school safety, Guard911 encourages law enforcement, SROs, and school staff to participate in the social media threat assessment training and consider implementing mobile panic button apps.
