Magazine School District has recently developed a new safety task force to enhance the protection of their students and faculty.

Called Defend Our Children, it includes staff, community leaders, local and state law enforcement, and emergency personnel. The goal is to join forces in order to combine skills and expertise to further enhance the protection and response capabilities regarding threats and other emergencies.

By combining expertise and identifying needs, they grow closer to the goals of safety and accountability for the district families, staff, and community. Their future plans include conducting realistic drills involving the community task force and partnering with surrounding school districts in order to test the existing plans and make adjustments as needed before being faced with the crisis.
