Carroll County School System Hosts 9th Annual Safety Summit

Jul 23 2021

Carroll County School System held its 9th Annual Safety Summit on Friday, July 23. School Safety Teams along with first responders from local public safety and health agencies reviewed emergency plans and discussed safety measures in preparation for the upcoming school year.

Carroll County School System is a leader in safety and was the first school system in Georgia to implement an annual Safety Summit. Since 2010, the district has invested more than $10 million for enhanced safety measures, including SHIELD systems, access-controlled doors, the Centegix Crisis Alert System, high definition cameras, and many other initiatives. Additionally, district and school leaders work closely with GEMA to conduct site surveys, and severe weather drills are practiced on school campuses to ensure staff and students are prepared.

“We appreciate the partnership we share with our local public health and safety agencies,” said Terry Jones, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative and Support Services. “The Safety Summit provides us with a great opportunity to align our efforts through communication and collaboration to keep the health and safety of our students and staff as our top priority.”
