There are several layers to school security and the very first are the teachers. 

Teachers see and know their students more than anyone else. They observe students on a daily basis. With training, teachers can learn to identify the red flags of a struggling student.

  • Spiraling grades
  • Unusual or a drastic change in dress or hair color/style
  • Poor attitude
