About the Safe Schools Working Group

In June 2020, the Columbus Board of Education announced the formation of a Safe Schools Working Group to evaluate the safety and security program in Columbus City Schools, including the District’s relationship with the Columbus Police Department.

The working group includes a broad range of stakeholders and will be asked to make recommendations to the Board of Education and the Superintendent regarding the District’s full safety and security program. After receiving more than 250 applicants to join the group, the Board of Education officially seated the working group at its meeting on June 30.
