Keeping Our Schools Safe
How Are We Ensuring Student and Staff Safety?
Understandably, this training was emotionally trying for many of our professional staff. However, the teachers, secretaries, guidance counselors, and all other staff members took this training very seriously. We had a few reports from Upper Perk teachers who stated that this was the most beneficial professional learning experience they have ever participated in.
The multi-hazard planning committee has been continuing to meet in order to develop a plan for communication on school safety and ALICE procedures at Upper Perk. Parents have received communication about ALICE information and school safety over the past few weeks. Throughout April, the district is hosting several parent evenings in order to inform our parents and community about the procedures. During these workshops, parents will have an opportunity to learn about ALICE procedures, the experiences their children will participate in and ask questions about the process.
How are we Improving School Climates in All of Our Buildings?
The administration of the climate survey is one step in a larger framework of school improvement. This five-step process include a readiness, assessment and analysis, action planning, implementation and reflection.
