School Safety and Culture Department Vision
A safe school is a place where learning can occur in a welcoming environment free of intimidation, violence, and fear.
Rich Township is dedicated to providing a safe environment for children so they can focus on learning and growing.
School Safety and Culture Department Mission
Rich Township Safety and Security Department is committed to the safety and security of students, staff, and visitors within Rich Township High School District 227.
Professional development and collaborative partnerships are necessary to the success of the safety plan and emergency management efforts that include prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery procedures relevant to potential natural and human-caused crisis.
Safe School Planning
Safe school planning is a partnership that includes a working relationship with local emergency responders, community members, government leaders, social service networks, parents, and students.
A safe school plan is a dynamic process that is comprehensive, evaluative and constantly evolving.
Safe school planning is as much of a journey as it is a destination.
Organizational capacity, professional development, and teamwork are formed and shaped during the journey.
