Safety & Security
Safe schools are fundamental to students' school successes and achievements. Consequently, providing a safe and orderly school environment remains an ever-present priority of the Mississippi Achievement School District. School safety should be addressed through a comprehensive approach that focuses on prevention, intervention and response planning. Systems and programs should be in place that create caring school communities where all students and staff feel safe and supported. Key to the process of building and maintaining safe schools is the development of active partnerships between schools and communities.
The Division of Safety & Security provides support to schools in the areas of physical security, emergency operations and school discipline. Training and technical assistance may be requested to provide guidance in the development of a safe and secure school environment for students, faculty and administrators. Resources and areas of technical assistance include:
School Resource Officer/School Safety Officer Training
