Tuesday is the last day Clayton County residents can complete a survey on school safety measures the district is considering for the 2022-2023 academic year.

The south metro school system said that to maintain a safe environment next year it plans to increase security for the 52,000-student district. The survey will help leaders gauge what security measures parents, staff, students and the public want to see and those they don’t.

The survey comes a month after the school system, worried about a sharp rise in weapons brought on campus, prohibited students from bringing bookbags to school or to access lockers. Tuesday is the last day of school for Clayton County students.
