Safe Schools Symposium

Local schools are working together to ensure all  proper safety measures are in place in case of an emergency. Wednesday was the first annual Safe Schools Symposium. Over 250 local law enforcement and school personnel across Western North Carolina counties participated. Their goal is to enhance relationships and improve communication to better prepare for a school crisis.

"Shortly after Sandy Hook and the tragedy that occurred there last year, the task force was commissioned to really look at our safe schools plan and to go out and identify most current best practices," said Assistant Superintendent Dr. Robbie Adell of Buncombe County Schools.

This is not the first step Buncombe County Schools have taken to make their grounds safer. It also created a safe schools task force, which has been looking into safety issues since the Sandy Hook tragedy.
