Monroe County Schools To Host Safety Forum

Children walk into Templeton Elementary School in Bloomington.

The Monroe County School Corporation is tackling the issue of school safety Monday night. Administrators, parents and students are gathering for a forum at Jackson Creek Middle School in Bloomington.

School and Community Services Director Beverly Smith says it is part of a discussion about recent tragedies in Newtown, Connecticut and Alabama.

“We‘re doing this in partnership with the Foundation of Monroe County Schools and really wanting to sit down and have a transparent conversation with the school community in light of the many things we‘ve seen recently,” she says.

Smith says student and staff safety is already a top priority, but they want to maximize any new possibilities. The forum is free and open to the public and being at 7 p.m.
