January 15, 1999
|FROM:||Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||School Safety Video|
Enclosed with this memo is your complimentary copy of a video entitled, School Safety." The Department of Education worked with Longworth Productions last summer to produce this video, using funds available from the Safe and Drug-free Schools Grant. Since that time, the video has been aired in several locations across the state on one of the major networks. We hope that you will be able to use this video as a tool to work with staff, parents, and the community in your discussions about issues related to school safety. The video also provides information about some of the initiatives that are under way throughout the Commonwealth, including the School Resource Officer program, teacher training opportunities, and conflict mediation programs. Because of specifications included in our contract with Longworth Productions, we ask that you not duplicate copies. If you'd like to have additional copies, we can provide these for you. To request duplicates, please call Jim Calleran at 804-225-2972 or Marsha Hubbard at 804-225-2928. PDS/shs Enclosure: A hard copy of this memo and its attach- ment will be sent to the superintendent's office.
