For student abuse to stop, systemic change is needed or we go back to the same cycle: shock – outrage – demands – promises – move on until the next case is made public. We want ALL students to feel safe when returning to school, both physical and emotionally. You are invited to join this critical advocacy.
The Student Safety Committee will address issues of student safety, abuse of students on school grounds or within the school community including and especially harm perpetrated by school district employees. Accountability is the primary tool for reducing harm to a student’s well-being. This committee will be focused on supporting families to properly report and follow up of complaints as well as advocacy at the district and state levels to hold district and state authorities accountable.
An informational meeting will be held on Thursday, January 7th at 7PM (registration required) to discuss positions, membership, scope of work and budget.
Committee Interest Forms will be accepted until January 15th, 2021. Selected members will be notified via email on Friday, January 22nd. The time commitment is currently to be determined, but consistent engagement is expected through the 2020-21 school year.
