School Security Balance

A recommended article from the National School Boards Association:

"There have been more than 230 shootings on K-12 campuses since the April 1999 Columbine massacre. In this anxious time, infrastructure security has entered the school security conversation. ASBJ examines how schools create safe learning environments by securing their buildings and how physical upgrades fit into the larger picture of school safety."

Summer Meals Program

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about how children and teens who receive free or reduced-priced lunch in school will eat healthy while school is out. Although SAU 16 School Districts do not offer a Summer Meals Program, there are numerous sites across the State which provide free meals to children during the summer.

Please use the following links for more information. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
