The READY Program is so much more than a training or a professional development. It's a comprehensive school wide program to prevent violence.

Nothing comes as close to giving you this level of materials, training, & support to help you successfully prevent a school attack as well as lesser acts of random violence.

When you implement the READY Program at your school, your parents, students, and staff will see and feel the difference and thank you for making them safer.

There's nothing else like it... learn more

I have moved from fear because of what happened at Newtown to knowing I can increase safety layers. Now I have tools to help me & I feel like I can talk to someone if I have a problem.

Wonderful, relevant training. You inspired me again to 'go that extra mile'. I was going to retire, but I've changed my mind.

The Shomette Group is the bread and butter of school safety for Windsor Schools.

The Newtown tragedy has been haunting me every day. We are so much like that school. Today helped me understand how I can make my building more secure. I'm going to do a school vulnerability assessment & also offer to do one for other buildings in our district. Hard to explain but your personal investment in this Don is so clear. Keep sharing & educating.

It's Like Vietnam All Over Again

My mother was just a little girl in 1940 when war engulfed the world. I have always been profoundly grateful to the men who answered the call during those terrible times. Those men were willing to sacrifice everything including their own lives so a little girl (my mom) in rural Pennsylvania would be safe. Their example of selflessness would contribute greatly to why I joined the Marines.

 

We rightly call the men who fought in WWII the Greatest Generation even though at that time there was institutionalized racism in American and in particular the military. Black men were officially deemed incapable of leading white men or themselves, they were housed in separate barracks, forced to eat separately, and relegated to the most menial and degrading jobs all because of the color of their skin.
