Dr. Maher discusses the continuous and ongoing measures our staff undertake to ensure schools are safe and secure places for students to learn. From a retired Army general as a risk manager, to our close partnership with the Sioux Falls Police Department and our School Resource Officers, to regular training for anything that could happen at school - including natural disasters, fires, or intruders.
