Recap: Special Education Parent Forum with Tim Charleston, School Safety Specialist on October 24th

The Special Education PTO would like to thank Tim Charleston, PPS's School Safety Specialist and Supervisor of Social Studies, Global and Enrichment Education, for meeting with parents on October 24, 2019, to discuss various safety and security measures considered by the district. Parents were able to share their perspectives, offer feedback and ask questions. Among the topics discussed were the possibility of creating backpacks or kits containing sensory items that will help children stay calm during a lock-down or evacuation, and the importance of ensuring the security personnel at each school "know every child", including children with special needs who may not be able to process directions quickly or may respond to an anxiety-producing situation in an unpredictable way. We look forward to continuing the discussion!
