Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Brian Binggeli issued a letter to parents on Tuesday addressing the district's response to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut on December 14.
In the letter, Binggeli said, “Brevard Public Schools is committed to investing all possible resources and intelligence measures to maintain secure campuses.”
He added that BPS works with local law enforcement on nationally-recognized training methods.
“The Office of District and School Security works collaboratively with all law enforcement agencies to coordinate police training on our campuses. The goal is to ensure that should there be an incident, these responding agencies are familiar with the layout of the school and can effectively engage in the Rapid Response method adopted nationwide by law enforcement agencies.”
Binggeli added that “school continues to be the safest place for your children.”
BPS has added the following links to their website to assist parents as they speak with their children about “the event that resulted in loss of such innocent life.”
