I also mentor students who need positive role models and promote diversity and acceptance to make our schools more welcoming.

District Safety Committee
The District Safety Committee meets once a month to discuss District-wide safety issues. The committee also conducts safety inspections, staff training, and assists in developing new ideas to keep staff and students safe.
District Emergency Procedures Committee
The District Emergency Procedures Committee meets regularly to outline the responsibilities and duties of the District and its employees in the development and maintenance of emergency operations plans. Developing, maintaining, and exercising these plans empowers employees in an incident to act quickly and knowledgeably. District emergency operations plans are based on the National Incident Management System and allow for complete integration with first responders and law enforcement through the Incident Command System framework. The committee representatives include employees of the District, local law enforcement, county emergency management, fire departments, parents, and community members.
