An Introduction to Get Real: Understanding School Bomb Threats

Posted by John Baker on Aug 2, 2016 10:24:56 AM

Find me on:

So why am I taking the time to write a three part blog on school bomb threats?  The answer is simple.  School leaders are struggling to understand what is the best way to manage bomb threats. 
For some schools bomb threats have become a chronic problem; and how do you manage them when that happens?  Do you respond  to the first threat the same as the 10th threat?  Do you interrupt the educational process every time someone finds a scribbled note with a vague reference to a bomb written on it?  To further compound matters hyper-sensitive parents and community members are quick to judge school leaders based on whether they felt to school did to much or to little.  Law enforcement while perfectly willing to partner and help however they can are not the experts in this field either...nor should we expect them to be.    So that is why I am writing this blog. It is not packed full of definitive answers.  Rather it contains facts that are often overlooked and considers some of the ripple effect caused by our current responses.  If it stimulates some meaningful conversation in your next leadership meeting then it has done its job.  If it becomes the catalyst for change then all the better.  This is John Baker for safetysolutions4schools.com.
