COLUMBIA CITY â€” Both district and countywide, school safety has been at the top of Whitley County Consolidated Schools officialsâ€™ lists this past school year.
With the creation of the Whitley County School Safety Commission, led by WCCS, as well as the hiring of a school resource officer and the WCCS safety committee, several new plans have been put into place to keep students safe from violence, bad weather and other emergencies.
The district created flip books that contain all information needed in the event of an emergency. Those books have been placed in all classrooms for teacher and student use.
â€śWe created them all from the same template so they will have the same language,â€ť said Coesse Elementary School Principal Michelle Urban, who has taken the lead in WCCS safety procedures.
