Detroit Public Schools statement on school security
We have numerous plans in place to ensure our staff and students have the various resources needed to cope with Friday's events, including a hotline for parents and counselors, and social workers and psychologists are available at schools.
We have a robust security plan in place that continues to be implemented throughout the district by our Detroit Public Schools Police Department (which is the only dedicated PD for a school system).
Our facilities staff today conducted walk-throughs around out school buildings to make sure window are locked, doors are closed and the building are secure in accordance with district policy.
Again, the safety and security of our students and staff is a top priority for Detroit Public Schools.
