Metro School District Addresses Safety Concerns

A safe school environment is key factor for successful learning. That’s why leaders from the North St. Paul, Maplewood, and Oakdale school districts (ISD 622) signed up for some valuable training this spring to protect their students.

Specialists with the Minnesota School Safety Center (MnSSC) took educators and first responders through the district’s emergency response plan during a tour of John Glenn Middle School on March 31. This included a review of the district’s entry procedures, as well as evacuation, reunification and communication plans. MnSSC specialists also trained educators on crime prevention techniques and provided strategies to increase security measures in vulnerable areas.    

How We Help Make Schools Safer

​The Minnesota School Safety Center (MnSSC) serves as an essential school safety resource to schools, law enforcement, emergency responders and community partners by providing information, guidance, training, and technical assistance for all-hazard safety planning for schools.

The MnSSC works to: Guide school districts in developing and enhancing emergency plans, assist in the development of all hazard safety plans for schools, and coordinate preparedness activities including prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery with federal, state and local partners.
