Annual Safe Schools Discussion

Good evening Hart District Community,

With the beginning of classes and activities in the 2023-2024 school year, we recognize that the subject of school safety is always on everyone’s mind.  I’m writing tonight to share an invitation for you to be a part of our efforts to enhance and improve security in the Hart District.

In our effort to systematically identify evolving security needs in our District, we have committed to seeking the input of the community on an annual basis.  To that end, I would like to invite Hart District students, staff and parents to join us for our annual Safe Schools Discussion on September 5, from 6:00-8:00 pm, at the Santa Clarita Activities Center (The Aquatics Complex).  At this meeting, District staff will share an overview of our progress toward implementing best practices outlined in the report titled “Enhancing Plans and Procedures for the Prevention of Targeted Campus Violence.”

Captain Diez and our School Safety Resource Officers from the Sheriff’s Department will be on hand to share how local law enforcement partners with the District to protect our schools. Participants will be invited to provide feedback and suggestions in four key areas:

        Area #1: Mental Health and Wellness
        Area #2: Site Security
        Area #3: Communication
        Area #4: Policy and Training

The feedback from this Safe Schools Discussion will inform our efforts to enhance and improve our planning and help us determine how to allocate resources.

We hope you can join us,
Mike Kuhlman
