More than 150 people representing nearly 40 school districts attended a special summit held by the Alliance for High Quality Education, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, and Ohio Governor John Kasich. The goal of the summit was to educate school district leaders about the scope of the heroin epidemic, how to engage communities in the fight against drug abuse, and best practices for prevention.
School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety.
