Angelosante speaks to the BDN about school shooting hoaxes in Maine

The Bangor Daily News interviewed Courtney Angelosante, PBIS initiative coordinator at the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development, about how to support students in light of school shooting hoaxes. Angelosante said that students, families, educators and first responders who were impacted by the calls and lockdowns Tuesday may have a variety of responses to and questions about what happened. Providing time and spaces to talk is vitally important. “Even if it was just a threat, it can hurt and have long-lasting impacts. But, we should also remember that most people are good,” Angelosante said.
