Seattle school district, police, to form working group on school safety

Seattle’s police department and public-school district are forming a working group to evaluate how to improve school safety, the district announced Thursday afternoon.

“As more information becomes available from Connecticut and as our nation continues to have discussions about school safety, this working group will review recommendations from the Department of Education and law enforcement,” Superintendent Jose Banda wrote in a news release. “Together, we will work on sustainable plans for implementing improved safety measures across the District.”

The district’s central office is also planning to send staff to take a deeper look at each individual school’s safety plans, spokeswoman Lesley Rogers said. In Seattle, each principal crafts his or her own security procedures.

Schools around the state, including in Seattle, have reported that they’ve been extra vigilant in the aftermath of a school shooting in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 children and six adults.

Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Police Department came up with the idea for the working group Wednesday, Rogers said.
