California continues to make sure students, teachers and staff will be safe and secure at school, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced at the 7th Annual “Safe Schools Conference” in Garden Grove.
Torlakson kicked off the conference, which brings together nearly 900 school administrators, counselors, child welfare and attendance personnel, safe schools coordinators, law enforcement, probation officials, mental health and social workers, and school psychologists.
“We need to heal as a nation. We need to come together,” Torlakson said. “Our schools can lead the way. Every day on campuses all across this great state, teachers, law enforcement, student, parents, and community members work together and show how we can build trust and confidence in each other and promote safety. “
