NJSBA Plans Bergen School Safety Parents Forum
Panel made up of local law enforcement officials will answer parent questions
The New Jersey School Boards Association will host a forum for parents on the topic of school safety and security which will be held at Paramus High School on March 27.
The tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., has led local education officials and law enforcement to reassess school security measures and parents also need to play a crucial role in the discussion, reports the NJSBA.
"Safe and Secure Schools: A Parent's Forum" will feature a panel of educators and law enforcement professionals who will discuss approaches that districts are taking to improve school safety. There will also be time dedicated for a question-and-answer session.
Deputy Chief Kenneth R. Ehrenberg of Paramus
Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli
Chief Donald V. Keane of Cliffside Park
Chief Robert J. Kugler of Saddle Brook
Sgt. Michael Pontillo of Westwood
Sgt. Matthew McClutchy of Westwood
The program will be held at Paramus High School Wednesday, March 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. Registration is at 6:30 p.m.
NJSBA is encouraging school districts to invite parents and other concerned community members to this informative event. Pre-registration is required and available through the following online registration link: http://bergenparent.eventbrite.com/.
