Purpose of the Forums

After the Parkland school shooting, the Green Bay Area Public School District was aware of a heightened concern by parents regarding school safety. The District was also receiving communications from vendors and concerned citizens providing suggestions and possible solutions. In addition, social media conversations expressed a need for parents to have an opportunity to connect with one another about how they could have a more active role in keeping their children safe.

The School Safety Community Forums are an opportunity for parents, District staff and members of the public to engage in facilitated roundtable conversations that allow all voices to be heard regarding school safety. The objective of the forums is to gather input regarding school safety concerns and solutions and to provide community members a safe place to engage in this important community conversation.

Facilitated Roundtable Conversations
Facilitators will be ensuring all voices are heard as individuals respond to the following questions:

- As a community member/parent/District staff what concerns do you have regarding student and staff safety in Green Bay Area Public Schools?

- In regard to school safety procedures, what do you want to know that you do not already know?

- What are the pros and cons of the Police Chief’s thoughts of placing an armed officer in our schools?

- Given no financial/staffing limitations, in your view, what does a solid school safety plan look like?

- How can parents/students/community members play an active role in school safety?

- What ways would you recommend improving communication between schools and community regarding school safety?
- What other concerns about school safety do you have that you feel we are missing?
