School safety and security: CHCCS community information, input Sessions

In July 2020 the CHCCS Board of Education established a School Safety Task Force. The purpose of the task force was to make recommendations to the Board by June of 2021 regarding improvements to school safety and security, and whether to maintain the district's School Resource Officer (SRO) program. SROs are sworn law enforcement officers assigned to each middle school and high school. In July of 2021, the Board granted a 1-year extension of the task force’s work.


Below are opportunities for the public to receive updates on the task force's work, examine the timeline for the school safety and security review process, and provide input on the Board's decision, which is currently scheduled to take place at its June 16, 2022, meeting.
