Saratoga Springs, NY – Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools announced that it will host a School Safety Forum with special guest speaker, Max Schachter.
Max Schachter is the father of Alex Schachter, one of the seventeen people tragically murdered during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre on February 14, 2018.
Max’s relentless advocacy to make schools safer for children culminated in his founding of the Safe Schools for Alex Foundation.
Max partners with school districts and law enforcement agencies nationwide to evaluate and improve their existing safety protocols.
He has testified before Congress, served as one of the fifteen commissioners for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission, and regularly consults with state and federal officials on how to improve school security.
“This event presents an opportunity for our community to learn from the mistakes made at Parkland and identify ways in which we can prevent a similar tragedy in Saratoga,” said Kara Rosettie, founder of Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Registration is mandatory as seats are limited.

About Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools
As a result of the Saratoga Springs Board of Education Vote on October 9, 2018 to disarm the district’s active and retired police officers working in a security capacity on school grounds, concerned parents formed Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools. SPFSS advocates for the reinstatement of historically proven security measures to protect students, faculty, and administration in the school district.
