Hampton Bays School Superintendent Lars Clemensen, a member of the New York State Council of School Superintendents Executive Committee and an author of the 2018 Blueprint for School Safety, joins the editors this week to discuss what school districts and the state are doing to address safety in light of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24 and other school shootings. Clemensen was present for Governor Kathy Hochul’s recent signing of Alyssa’s Law, which requires school districts to consider the use of silent panic alarm systems in their safety plans. The law is named for Alyssa Alhadeff, a 14-year-old who was one of 17 killed in the Parkland, Florida, shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018.
