School Safety

PRIORITY ONE!

EDUCATION OF THE YOUTH OF GRADY COUNTY IS THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM.

 SAFETY OF ALL PEOPLE IS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!

 The Grady County Board of Education is committed to the safety of the students, the employees, the public, and the property and facilities under the jurisdiction of the Board of Education.

 In fulfilling this commitment, a safe and healthy school environment will be provided and maintained. Efforts will be made to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in personal injuries/illness, security threats, fires, and damage to property.

 Each school and department of the school system has an active safety committee that meets on a regular basis to address any risks or threats which may exist to the students, staff, general public, and facilities. A System Wide Safety Committee and Safety Coordinator exist in support of these individual safety programs.

 A formal Emergency Management Plan is in place which addresses all situations which could present a risk to our schools. This plan was developed in partnership with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency.

 Each school has an established safety program which can be reviewed by contacting the individual school.
