As a presenter at the annual National School Boards Association (NSBA) conventions, I have the great fortune of meeting many of our nation’s school board members, superintendents, and education support organizations.
This year, at NSBA’s Chicago convention, we spoke a lot about the importance of keeping school safety on the front burner during tough financial times. A number of school board members graciously offered to share their perspectives on school safety as leaders of local school boards.
Take a minute to listen to Marianne Jasen, a member of the Board of Education for the Sweet Home Central School District in Amherst, New York:
Marianne brings a strong message about the importance of school boards keeping school safety on the front burner. I hope you listened to her interview in which she talks about the value of School Resource Officers, incorporating school safety into the district’s operating budget, the role and interest of parents in school safety, and other school safety measures her district has taken to keep kids safe.
What does your school board do to enhance school safety, security, and emergency preparedness?
