Columbine High School (1999)
Sandy Hook Elementary (2012)
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (2018)
Q: What is the Common Denominator since 1999 (nearly 20 years)?
A: The Pieces of the Puzzle (concerning behaviors, suspicious activities, pre-incident indicators, warning signs, etc.) remain scattered across community members and across the social media community, which is why Prevention fails again and again.
Because it is impossible to Prevent everything, School Security and Response solutions are clearly needed, but it’s also clear School Security and Response solutions are NOT enough.
“Some of the challenges we were facing as a district were knowing if we could go back and see that we tried to prevent things, but paper gets lost and things happen. With TIPS we are able to track everything from the beginning to the end. It has been a great tool.” – Awareity Client
