Tuscaloosa City Schools will host a school safety meeting this evening

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Tuscaloosa city school system is teaming up with Tuscaloosa police to host a school safety meeting Monday.

Tuscaloosa city school district leaders are calling all parents to come out to a school safety meeting scheduled to happen at Central High School beginning at 6 p.m. Monday.

Parents will get an update about the system’s latest safety protocols implemented this school year. Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson will also be there to answer any questions regarding the elementary schools having new school resource officers. Superintendent Mike Daria said it’s important families are in the loop about their efforts to protect their kids at school.

“Education is our purpose but the safety of our students that’s a value that we have. We just want to make sure that our parents and our community are aware of what we’re putting in place to ensure their safety. Safety is everybody’s responsibility. It’s certainly the responsibility of the schools but we also have a responsibility for parents, students, the police department. We all have a responsibility to make sure our children are safe so this is to continue that discussion,” said Daria.

The meeting is expected to go on until 7:30 p.m. at Central High School.
