EDWARDSBURG PUBLIC SCHOOLS HOMECOMING 2016 VIDEO
Volunteer Background ChecksVolunteers play a very important role in the educational experience offered at Edwardsburg Public Schools. We are thankful for the generous support of hundreds of individuals who donate their time in our schools. Because of the importance of student safety, the district requires that all volunteers who are in regular direct contact with students complete a yearly Volunteer Release Form for an Internet Criminal History check. This includes volunteer coaches and volunteers who travel on trips with students. Prospective and current volunteers will need to fill out the form and provide a copy of your current driver's license. This form is available in your school's office or on our website. Current volunteers, as well as new volunteers, are required to undergo a background check. We appreciate your cooperation. Working together, we can provide great opportunities for our students.
Educational research indicates that a safe and orderly environment maximizes student academic achievement. Edwardsburg Public Schools is committed to fostering an environment conducive to student learning in all buildings. As a result of a recently conducted security envelope analysis, the following steps have been implemented:
Building Site Emergency Plans
Building Site Emergency Plans have been developed to outline proper response to bomb threats, hazardous material exposure, civil disturbances and hostage situations and are currently being revised through a grant.
Photo ID Badges are required for students, staff, administration and any guests/visitors entering the building.
Security Cameras are at various locations in the buildings as well as the parking lots.
A Closed Campus environment is in effect at all buildings. Once our students arrive in the morning they are not allowed to leave unless authorized by building administration.
