Welcome to District 8 Safety and Security
Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 is dedicated to the safety and security of all schools, students, and staff. District and school staff must have a comprehensive understanding of the systems that improve safety and security and allow for an immediate response to potential threats to the school environment, crisis situations, and other student or staff needs that may impact the typical school day. Because of the importance of school safety and security as well as the increased legal requirements to ensure student safety, Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 formed a multidisciplinary committee to support the continued development of safety guidelines and expectations, internal and external building staff expectations, visitor management, communication systems, school safety personnel expectations, and other areas of safety and security that committee members believe are necessary for a comprehensive understanding of safety and security expectations.
- To practice consistent procedures and expectations by all staff, students, and the community in relation to safety and security;
- To establish emergency response and management procedures and protocols;
- To understand the needs in the educational environment in Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 and how safety and security impact those needs;
- To align district security personnel to include: SROs, armed non-sworn officers, and unarmed district security staff to meet the safety and security needs of each school.
Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 has identified school safety and security as a priority. By working together and agreeing upon certain basic guidelines and expectations, the district can ensure that guidelines and expectations are practiced and communicated by all district staff, students and the community.
