Woodford County Schools Emphasize School Safety with Community Forum
VERSAILLES, Ky. (FOX 56) — A historic first joint session of the Woodford County School Board will take place Tuesday night, and district leaders want everyone involved.
At 6 p.m. at Woodford County Middle School, the Woodford County School Board will be joined by municipal leaders from surrounding towns, city and county law enforcement, and anyone from the general public who would like to join us. Also in attendance will be Jon Akers, executive director of the Kentucky Center for School Safety.
The purpose of the meeting is to make everyone aware of the security measures put in place by the district. At the same time, district leaders want to hear from parents about their ideas. This forum will allow the public to gain insight into how the district serves students.
“Just being able to put this back on the schedule and bring everyone together in Woodford County shows unity. We are all working together to keep our children safe here in Woodford County, and that is the most important thing right now,” said Woodford County School District Superintendent Danny Adkins.
Cassie Prather has children who go to school in this neighborhood. She spoke highly of the district’s efforts to keep students safe and is grateful for the communication effort.
“I couldn’t be happier or feel more secure as a parent of five children in the Woodford County public school system. We moved here almost seven years ago, and one of the reasons was because of the phenomenal school system,” Prather said.
