• Immediate Action Items -
    • An intercom with a camera can be used by school staff to visually verify a guest’s identity and reason for entering campus before they are allowed access to the office.
    • Use a visitor management system to verify that guests are authorized to visit the campus.

     Franklin Community Schools expects to be 100% compliant with each of these safety measures by August 2013. 

     
    Long Term Plans -
    • Utilize secure vestibules at main entrances.  The door that accesses the school should be locked.  Visitors should be forced to go to the front office to check in. 
    • Obtain additional funding to increase employment of School Resource Officers (SRO) through proposed legislation or grant opportunities.
    • Create meaningful volunteer opportunities for concerned citizens.
    • Increase the number of certified school safety specialists and increase the levels of trainings for faculty, staff, parents, students and community.
    • Investigate the use of metal detectors or other pertinent technology used to restrict weapons enter the building.
