Board of Education Seeks Community Feedback on Policy Addressing Student Well-being and School Safety
The Board of Education is seeking feedback from parents and members of the community on a new policy addressing student well-being and school safety. Policy COA, Student Well-being and School Safety, ties together the district’s policy on Wellness: Physical and Nutritional Health, and its work on Be Well 365: The Framework to Support the Physical, Social and Psychological Well-being of All Students initiative. The draft policy addresses safety from the perspective of promoting a positive school climate; accountability for all; behavioral threat assessment; facilities, security staff and technology; collaboration with count partners including health and law enforcement agencies; and emergency planning and preparedness. Draft Policy COA also incorporates key requirements set forth in the Maryland Safe to Learn Act of 2018.
