PITTSBURGH – A Pennsylvania school district has cancelled an active shooter training over concerns about “violent, homophobic and anti-Muslim” social media posts by the company to perform.
More than 260 parents had registered for the event, planned by the North Allegheny School District.
The event was intended to show parents the type of security training staff members receive. It was canceled after some parents raised concerns about Pittsburgh on the basis of the contractor INPAX, who has worked with the district for years. The parents cited the messages they called “inappropriate.”
INPAX president Sam Rosenberg says the messages are “humor as a Marine.” He says that he removed after the school district expressed concern. He says that he is responsible for the training of North Allegheny for free as a thank you.
The district says it is reconsidering its partnership with INPAX.
