Enhanced Safety and Security for Catholic Schools
The Catholic Schools Office and the Office of Risk Management are committeed to aiding our schools in the process of enhancing the safety and security of students, faculty and staff. In the past few years, we hosted a series of school safety meetings for Catholic school principals and administrators, and we continue to revisit the topic with additional training and resources.
