Comprehensive 10-Point Safety Investment Plan
Fayette County Public Schools will become a national model under its Comprehensive 10-Point Safety Investment Plan, which is designed not only to prevent a school shooting, but also to lessen the other risks students can face, including bullying, self-harm, suicide, drug use, and online exploitation.
The District Safety Advisory Council, which the superintendent introduced on Feb. 22, 2018, examined best practices in school safety and relevant issues in juvenile justice, mental health, and social media. Its meetings, which rotated among the district’s six high schools, were not open forums or town hall meetings though they were open to the public. Community input was captured electronically during each meeting and via suggestions emailed to FCPS.
