Last Wednesday evening, November 30, our Community Engagement team hosted an online forum on school safety. Among the experts who spoke were Sally Hudson, who represents Albemarle in the Virginia House of Delegates, and our state senator, Creigh Deeds. They were joined by professors and researchers from the University of Virginia, a representative from the Albemarle County Police Department, and several professionals from our Student Services program. In addition to the current state of safety in our schools and our prevention and protective measures, conversations addressed how our school division is meeting the social and emotional needs of students.
In case you missed it, we wanted to share the video recording of the forum, including presentations and responses to questions from the audience:
