DCPS Parents for Transparency and Communication

This petition had 280 supporters

The goal of this petition is for the Board of Education to institute a policy which requires all schools in Dorchester County Public Schools to inform parents when their child is involved in a potential crime ASAP (whether directly or indirectly) as well as the Dorchester County Sheriffs Office be notified of EVERY incident within 24 hours.  

Currently, the schools are not required to report crimes to the Sheriffs Office and parents are not being notified when their child is the victim of a crime unless it's "life threatening".  

Parents should be confident that their children are being taught in a safe learning environment.  We should not be hearing from our children that they were the victim of a crime when they return home from school.  The administration should be notifying parents as soon as they become aware of the situation.  

This petition will be presented to the Board Of Education at the November 16, 2017 meeting and everyone is encouraged to attend.
