Community Action Team Members Wanted

Over the next three months, the Office of Operational & Security Services (OSS) will be hosting school and community stakeholders in conversations about ways to improve school climate and culture as a part of the Safe in Our Schools Initiative (SIOS). The information gathered will be used to inform the MPS leadership conversation in January about policies and budget regarding school safety, School Resource Officers and magnetic locks. In an effort to engage community stakeholders in this process, we'll be forming community action teams in five regions of the city (North, Northeast, Downtown, South and Southwest), who will develop SIOS' community outreach plans for each region.

Ideally, action team members will have the following qualities:

  • Knowledgeable about their community and experience being engaged in their community
  • Vested interest and experience with MPS schools (i.e., parent, student, educator/staff member, resident, business owner, etc.)
  • Available to meet three times (90 minutes each) between September and November. 
If you are interested in participating on a community action team, please contact Jason Matlock, Director, Operational & Security Services.
