The tragic shooting death at the Episcopal School in Jacksonville, Florida has placed the issue of workplace violence on the radar screens of schools nationwide. On March 6, Head of School Dale Regan notified a teacher that his employment was ending due to performance concerns. After receiving the news, the former teacher left the school only to return later with a gun. He walked into the school, went directly to Ms. Regan's office, and after shooting her he turned the gun on himself. The shooting has, understandably, rocked the independent school community.
