School Safety Night:
Police officers from all the different cities District 204 covers came out for a panel at Waubonsie Valley last night. The School Safety Night panel covered topics including how School Resource Officers are selected and what they do in schools, as well as new safety programs like ALICE Training and School Safety Dog – which brings a golden retriever into schools on random days to sniff for drugs and firearms.
This morning and last night, parents, community members and educators came out for Focus 203, for the latest community engagement session from District 203. The title this time around was “Every Student Achieves – Every Student Grows,” focusing on support systems for students. Participants took part in breakout sessions to come up with solutions to help provide more resources to better support students and review those that are already in place. The next Focus 203 will be January 30 and 31.
