San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) Superintendent Dr. Dale Marsden was a featured panelist for the April 17 Protecting Our Schools from Gun Violence event in Washington, D.C.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) Policy and Advocacy Center is holding the event in the wake of one of the deadliest school shootings in American history. Other panelists include Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Principal Ty Thompson, former Perry Hall High School principal George Roberts, and Everytown for Gun Safety Partnerships Manager Erica Lafferty. Lafferty is the daughter of former Sandy Hook School principal Dawn Lafferty, who was killed while protecting students from a school shooter.
According to NASSP, the panel discussion is an opportunity for school leaders to voice their opinions on the issue of gun violence, how legislative decisions will affect their ability to keep schools safe, and their policy recommendations to prevent future violence.
