SANTA FE – Amid complaints over an instructional video for students highlighting strategies for reacting to an on-campus active shooter, Santa Fe Public Schools will give parents the opportunity to have their children opt-out from viewing the video.
SFPS Superintendent Veronica Garcia said Tuesday some parents expressed concerns about the effect the video could have on students, especially the youngest ones in lower grades.
She said the school district received close to 60 complaints from parents about the video that teaches students to run, hide and, at last resort, fight an armed intruder on school grounds.
Most of the complaints came from parents with children attending Acequia Madre, Carlos Gilbert, Wood Gormley and E.J. Martinez elementary schools, she said.
