The Colonial School District will host a safe schools night on Thursday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. The event will begin in the auditorium and feature a keynote speaker, breakout sessions and an opportunity to speak with District administrators.
"The safety of our students is our top priority," said Colonial School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Christian. "We pride ourselves on providing a safe and secure environment in which our students can learn and grow. The goal of Safe Schools Night is to share some of our initiatives, resources and relationships we have established with local law enforcement, mental health professionals and more."
Steve Beck, the School Safety Coordinator at the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety will be the keynote speaker. Mr. Beck has presented school safety programs to district administrators and staff several times over the past few years and has participated in school safety reviews. He has been in his current position since 2007 and previously spent nearly 29 years in the Lower Moreland Police Department.
Breakout sessions will highlight cyberbullying, the Student Assistance Program (SAP) that refers students to community and mental and behavioral health supports, local law enforcement, how to design safe facilities and more.
