The Instructor: Clayton Cranford
Why would a student bring a weapon to school and without any explicable reason open fire on fellow students and teachers? Are school shooters angry? Are they crazy? Is their motive revenge? Hatred for the victims? A hunger for attention?
This 120-minute seminar will answer the questions parents have about making their school safe from violence.
The instructor, a former juvenile investigator, and behavioral threat assessor will explain how an individual becomes a school spree killer. The instructor will show parents how to identify the warning signs that a person is on the path to violence, and what parents, schools, and law enforcement can do to prevent violence from occurring in our schools. Parents and educators do not need to feel helpless. When we know what to look for, we can make a difference.
- The observable signs an individual is on a path to violence.
- What happens after a student is identified as a person of concern.

- How to monitor your child’s online activity.
