The tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, has led local education officials and law enforcement to reassess school security measures. Parents also need to play a crucial role in the discussion.
On Wednesday, March 27, the New Jersey School Boards Association will host "Safe and Secure Schools: A Parent's Forum," featuring an informative and interactive discussion on the new challenges of school security. The program will be held at Paramus High School from 7 – 9 p.m. Registration is at 6:30 p.m. NJSBA will host a 2nd meeting in the southern region of the state in April. The date and location will be available soon.
A panel of educators and law enforcement professionals will discuss current practices and ways districts are improving school safety. There will also be time dedicated for a question-and-answer session.
NJSBA is encouraging school districts to invite parents and other concerned community member to this informative event. Pre-registration is required and available through the following link:http://bergenparent.eventbrite.com/.
