“I strongly believe the program developed by the VTVFOF to better train school administrators, teachers, students, counselors, school resource officers, and other members of our school environments in how to prevent threats and provide an overall higher level of school safety will greatly benefit the community as a whole. It is a program that can be easily adopted by school districts across the country, providing a safer school environment for as many children as possible.”
