Thousands of Dallas ISD students learned how they can help prevent or respond to an active shooter crisis at a first-of-its kind situational awareness training at American Airlines Center.

The See, Say, Do Something Campaign was created through a partnership between Dallas ISD, American Airlines Center and the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM). In addition to speakers from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Dallas ISD Police, among others, Dallas ISD Teen School Board members led a panel discussion on how to address the issue of gun violence in schools.

“It’s imperative that we focus on what is important, and that is the voice of the students,” said IAVM Director of Education Mark Herrera. “For me, it’s about raising the students’ level of awareness and being the voice of the community to spot and report on the things that stand out.”

Molina High School student Glenda Meyer said the event was very helpful.

“I think this is something that every student can take something back from,” she said.
