Safety & Security

Recognizing the ever-increasing need for security in today’s schools, the Owen J. Roberts School District has embraced its responsibility to both school and community by instituting a variety of proactive security measures. These initiatives have been designed to provide a safe and secure environment wherein students and staff can safely and effectively pursue the educational goals of the District.

Security measures have been implemented throughout the District including the use of security cameras and door access control systems that have been installed in each of our schools. Safety and security procedures are continuously reviewed and practiced throughout the school year. In addition, a thorough safety and security assessment of each school in the District is completed annually and recommendations are addressed.

Security is the shared responsibility of administrators, teachers, staff, students, and parents/guardians. Working together ensures the safety of each individual within the District.

Because of the need for safety in our schools, there are four (4) very important policies all students and parents/guardians must understand. The policies on student complaint process, anti-harassment, and weapons are included here in their complete text, as is a summary of the Computer Use Policy.
