Social Media Emergency Plan from #ICANHELP

May 28, 2022 9:40 AM | Anonymous

Hey Digital Changemakers,

In light of the tragedy at Robb Elementary School, it's more important than ever that we take action to ensure the safety of our school campuses. Approximately thirty minutes before the mass shooting took place on May 24, the gunman posted messages to Facebook about his intentions to attack the school. At #ICANHELP, we want to help you take the best measures to protect your schools and communities against potential threats—both online and off. 

We are currently in the final stages of developing the Social Media Emergency Plan, which will educate students, staff, and administrators on how to respond to threats posted online, whether through private messages or public posts. Our goal is to help you ensure your school community is equipped to handle any crisis that poses a danger to people's safety and health. Let me know if you want to learn more.  We are in final stages and rolling it out at a Missouri Resource Officer Training June 27th and in Virgina at a School Board Conference. 

Easy for you to copy and paste the above into your newsletter. See below for more opportunities and events that #ICANHELP has in store:
