The safety of our schools and students is a priority for District 20. We continue to actively assess the safety and security of our schools. Our primary safety goal is prevention. Our teachers, support staff, and administration work to build relationships with our students. We assess student needs and provide a range of student-centered interventions to support and meet the individual needs of a student.
