Leading After a School Shooting: A Principal’s Role in Recovery, Healing, and Prevention

Hart Senate Office Building, Room 902, Washington, D.C.

Founded in April 2019, the NASSP Principal Recovery Network (PRN) is a national network of current and former school leaders who have experienced gun violence tragedies in their buildings. Together, the PRN seeks to assist principals in the immediate aftermath of a crisis and well beyond. PRN members provide much-needed support to their colleagues; share the combined wisdom of their experiences with the larger principal community; assist schools during recovery; and advocate for national school safety enhancements and violence prevention programs.

At this free PRN event, administrators discussed their stories, lessons learned through tragedy, and recommendations for congressional action to support schools impacted by gun violence and prevent future tragedies.

This event was livestreamed on Facebook.
