A new group will bring together members of the county’s educational and health and safety entities, all in an effort to improve school safety.
Dubbed Jackson County School Safety Commission, the group will have its first meeting Wednesday, with Seymour Community Schools serving as host. It will include officials from all four public school corporations in the county, along with parochial schools, local law enforcement and other agencies such as the Red Cross and the county health department that could be part of responding to an emergency or crisis situation.
Talmadge Reasoner, an assistant principal at Seymour High School and the district’s safety specialist, will lead the group initially as Seymour has the largest student population.
