Perrysburg Schools partners with police department and others to ensure safety
Safety Task Force
Last February 14’s mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, provoked a response from a Perrysburg parent that resulted in the formation of the Perrysburg School District’s safety task force, according to Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kadee Anstadt.
Meghan Michael, a U.S. Navy veteran whose children attend Perrysburg schools, wanted a voice in how the district is managing its safety initiatives, and she wanted parents to be “more engaged.”
“I was in the Navy for 20 years and had gone to military school for college,” she explained. “When Parkland happened, it just hit me that people need to be talking with each other about school safety. We have to pay attention. Nothing gets solved on Facebook; we all have to be aware.”
Mrs. Michael, who moved to Perrysburg in 2014, contacted Superintendent Tom Hosler to ask if she could address the board about making school safety a community effort.
