Spokane Public Schools asks you to weigh in on school safety
SPOKANE, Wash. — A threat made against Lewis and Clark High School has Spokane Public Schools rethinking safety measures and the district wants you to be part of the conversation.
The district is asking parents, staff and the rest of the Spokane community to fill out an online ThoughtExchange survey about school safety and security. A district spokesperson said the survey was made in response to a threat made by a Lewis and Clark student in May.
A separate threat against the school was made earlier this month.
So far, about 1,000 people have responded, with many saying a bigger focus needs to be placed on mental health in schools, that students should be made to feel more safe reporting their concerns and that there should be a single entry point in schools across the district.
The survey will be open until Nov. 21. You can access it here.
