The Secret Service is recommending that schools set up teams to assess threats and encourage students to report troubling behavior to prevent gun violence. Sandy Hook Promise, formed by the parents of two children killed on 12-14, has a program to facilitate those suggestions. The no-cost Know the Signs program is already in a number of schools.
The Secret Service put together their report after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
Sandy Hook Promise co-founder Nicole Hockley says a middle school guidance counselor in Cincinnati recently reported that the program helped to prevent a shooting there. Know the Signs has already trained more than 3.5 million students and educators.
