I delivered a one-hour presentation to summarize our report of findings for the Flemington-Raritan School Board in Flemington, New Jersey last night. The school security assessments were conducted in September, and the written strategic report of findings and school security assessment site reports for each school in the district were delivered in October.
School security assessments afford us an opportunity to learn from each client and this project was no exception. The district’s superintendent developed a superb rubric to allow his board to track the district’s progress in implementing the numerous opportunities for improvement identified in the report. He also assured the board that the district’s leadership team would work to maintain the numerous positive aspects identified in the school security assessment report. The level of student supervision, connectivity between students and staff, and a close collaboration between the district’s facilities department and building principals were all very impressive.
While on site to deliver the report of findings, I conducted two training sessions for front office staff and building administrators. It was an absolute pleasure to work with this high-quality, student-centered school district.
