10/19/2022

“Our student's safety should always come first. Unfortunately, we know that instances of harassment and violence persist, jeopardizing the safety of our students. In response to the volume of calls we received related to student safety, our office has worked with numerous schools, government agencies, and community-based organizations to ensure that students and their families are safe while traveling to and from school. Since 2017, we have facilitated community centered conversations addressing concerns regarding student and family safety while traveling to and from school. Those conversations led to community driven approaches to protect our students and their families; those efforts were incorporated into last year’s investments in Safe Passage programming offered to schools in the Safe Passage Priority areas…

The Office of the Student Advocate remains committed to amplifying the voices of our students and their families, while pushing for meaningful solutions. As we continue to support our youth, we are actively seeking opportunities to speak with students and families.”
