Student Safety

With the recent tragedy in Texas, we want to make our stakeholders aware of our efforts to keep Lumpkin County students safe. After our Community Forum on School Safety in February, we released a Request for Proposals to increase safety and security. We had several security companies complete site visits to assess our current situation and then draft proposals to make our campuses safer. We then had our leadership team review the proposals and we are in the process of having companies present their solutions. We plan to have increased safety measures in place when school begins in August.
In addition, we have allocated resources and assigned duties to have a designated safety coordinator for our school system. He will assist building leaders by monitoring all aspects of school safety. That individual is in the process of being trained on all aspects of school safety. 
We are committed to doing everything we possibly can to ensure our students are safe!
