The school system is supposed to be open to everybody.”
DeCraw and his fellow board members have made a concerted effort to make the public school district’s schools safer and more welcoming for all, regardless of age, gender, or race.
DeCrew has spoken at the Cheshire County School Board, hosted a forum for teachers at the Board of Education, and led a school safety committee that has formed the Cobbs County School Safety Task Force.
In fact, he says, “I’ve done a lot of outreach to the schools, including going to the parks, going to town halls, making presentations at town halls and working with teachers to try to change their attitudes.”
It’s not just the school system that has stepped up to the plate to make a difference.
The county board’s website also includes information on safety tips, the district’s “Cobb County Safety Program,” and the “School Safety Fund,” which was created by a grant from the state of Virginia and was created to provide additional resources to the Cobbers.
The district also recently launched an “Educational Safe Zone” that offers an opportunity for parents to attend school with a safe environment, while also helping to train and mentor teachers.
For instance, “Cobby County Safety Team” members, as the name suggests, will be available to help parents in the event of a violent incident.
DeGraw says the school district has also partnered with other agencies to help in the “community safety” of the community.
“We know how important it is to keep people safe and to give them the resources they need to stay safe,” he says.
“It’s really important to us that everybody who is a citizen of the state and citizen of Cobbs county and resident of this community are aware that the safety of the school is a priority for us,” he adds.
“We have a plan and we’re working with other entities to ensure that we are not just a part of the problem, but the solution to it.”
In fact the board recently made a big push to promote “school safety” to all citizens.
As part of a public education campaign to educate the public on the safety and safety of schools, the board issued a proclamation in November that outlines the “Safe Schools” campaign and a list of schools it wants to educate.
The proclamation specifically notes that the campaign includes information for parents on the “safety and security of schools” and states that the schools will be held accountable for safety of children.
It also states that schools are “not exempt from the laws of the Commonwealth or the laws in the District of Columbia that may apply.”
DeGraw points out that “We want the public to be aware that we have schools, that they are responsible for their safety, and that they have to be accountable for their behavior.
The schools are supposed to do that.”
The campaign will also be expanded with “safe schools” initiatives, “safeguards for all schools,” and a “Safety First” program, which will include a video featuring Cobbs school principal and former Vice President Al Sharpton explaining why the school safety process is important.
Cobbers school district is taking a big leadThe effort is a result of a state law passed in 2010 that makes it a crime for a public official to knowingly lie to a state agency.
In addition to the law, DeCrow says, the state has been encouraging the district to do more to improve its safety.
“The board of education is doing a lot more to work with our police department to make sure that our schools are safe,” DeCrawler says.
“I think it’s a good thing for the school to do because we have a very dangerous situation going on in the city of Cobbers.”
The district is also taking a leadership role in promoting “safe school” efforts and the Safe Schools campaign.
The school board has recently issued an “All-District Safety Report Card,” which grades schools on a scale of 0 to 100 on how safe they are in their schools.
As of July, the school had an 80 percent score.
In addition, the Cobber’s school board is also launching a “Safe Kids” campaign that is part of its Safe Schools program.
“Coralville is a safe community, we want our kids to feel safe at all times,” DeGrew says.
Coralvilles school district was named after former President George H.W. Bush”We have to change the culture, we have to make it safer,” DeCastro says.
He adds that there is also a need for “a new way of thinking about schools, which is to think about them as the family, and not the schools
