Fulton schools to hold safety meetings

Fulton County Schools will hold two specially scheduled meetings Tues., March 6, at Banneker High School and Thurs., March 8, at Centennial High School to talk about school safety. Both will be held 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the school gymnasiums.

Superintendent Jeff Rose will lead the discussion on security measures, including the way training, drills and safety plans prepare schools for potential scenarios as well as the investments being made in safety. Also, he will introduce members of the FCS police force, local police departments, and the school system's Psychological, Counseling and Social Work department to speak about community partnerships, mental health, and preventative strategies.

There will be a general session to hear from the district's safety experts. Then attendees will be divided into small groups to provide feedback.

General safety information and protocols will be discussed, but specific strategies will not be shared so that the district's tactical advantage is protected when responding to an event.n deciding whether to bring young children.

Banneker High School is at 6015 Feldwood Road in College Park and Centennial High School is at 9310 Scott Road in Roswell.
