This is a timeline of worldwide school shootings that supports the chapter entitled "Getting back to a “new normal”: Grief leadership after a fatal school shooting.

Violence in educational institutions compounds and accumulates in our collective memory, as school shootings have become a ubiquitous phenomenon. When a young man carrying three guns entered Dawson College in Montréal, the downtown core came to a standstill. As bullets sprayed and ricocheted, one young woman was killed, 19 others wounded, and a community of 10,000 students, teachers and staff were traumatized. This research employed a qualitative methodology, interviewing ten senior administrators and managers in-depth. Findings document the salient role grief leadership played in restoring balance and an educational focus in the wake of a shooting on campus and served to reshape the community into one of learning, resilience, and courage. It details specific actions taken by administrators, which promoted healing and re-established equilibrium at a site of grief, loss and terror. Administrative responses proved essential in helping to re-establish thriving at Dawson College.
