Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is accepting applications for additional members to serve on its Safety and Security Advisory Council.
Members are volunteers with diverse backgrounds with expertise in security, law enforcement, mental health and other areas. The council meets quarterly and provides suggestions and recommendations to the Superintendent and staff.
Superintendent Kimberly Hill started the advisory council at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Members are divided into four subgroups. Most recently, the facilities subgroup conducted site visits/threat assessments at a number of schools. During the school visits, the group focused on entrance points, arrival and dismissal procedures, lunch times, and completed or planned security enhancements.
Charles County residents interested in serving on the council should send a resume and letter of interest to Jason Stoddard, director of school safety and security, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at P.O. Box 2770, La Plata, MD 20646.
