Text of Superintendent's Call to the Community on School Safety
Over the past few days, we have witnessed the senseless school shootings in Florida that resulted in the tragic loss of 17 lives and a community left traumatized.
Please be assured that the Brockton Public Schools, in collaboration with the Brockton Police and School Police, have a longstanding safety and security plan in place for all our schools.
During the school year, we routinely conduct safety drills and our School and City Police departments continue to conduct and update training, response and safety procedures for school-related incidents.
A letter will be coming home after February vacation to outline current Brockton Public Schools safety and security drills. We will also invite parents and the community to a Safety and Security Forum in March to discuss these issues along with new technology that will allow parents to work with the school to communicate concerns.
I look forward to working with each and every one of you to make the Brockton Public schools a safe educational environment.
