Superintendent's Notice of Campus Security Upgrades

Over the summer the District has contracted with security consultants to have evaluations done of all of our facilities.  Through these evaluations we have learned a great deal about making each one of our campuses more secure for our children.  We will be working over the next few months to put these recommendations in place.  Many changes you will be able to see.  Some may not be noticeable without careful inspection.  All of the changes will be aimed at making our facilities safer and more secure for your child.  In some of the cases there may be a slight inconvenience from the way things were done in the past.  We ask for your patience and consideration as we make this transition.  Our goal in Tate County is to provide a quality education in a safe and secure environment.

Respectfully,

Daryl J Scoggin, Ed.D.
Superintendent
