School being held liable for their inactions which resulted in school shooting.

I think it was a systemic failure that allowed the Oxford shooting to happen. The parents are (rightfully so) being charged. If the school informs the parents of their concerns and nothing is done, then I believe the school should have. There are a lot of crappy parents out there and quite often the schools get involved. Whether its poverty, mental/physical abuse, hunger, or sickness, schools in the past have gotten involved.

The school failed the victims of this tragedy. Based on news reports, there were several warnings given by this kid weeks before the shooting. Especially the twitter post the night before.

The principal, counselor, and teachers knew the threats. I believe they are responsible, both in a civil manner as well as a criminal.
