School Safety in Jackson-Madison County
The safety of our students and staff is top priority of the Jackson-Madison County School System and School Board. Our district annually reviews established safety protocols to improve safety for students, employees and visitors to our campuses. Our district seeks to establish and enforce safety and security policies, accident prevention efforts, fire safety, emergency management, asset protection, parking control and traffic enforcement programs.
Through a partnership with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, all JMCSS high schools and middle schools have a School Resource Officer, SRO, in the building each school day. Each of our 23 school campuses and our District Office have a crisis plan in place and adhere to requirements for annual drills to ensure our students and staff know how to respond if a crisis situation were to occur.
The District has an Anonymous Alert application on our website that allows persons in our community the opportunity to report incidents they believe to be important to the safety of our students and staff in the district without revealing their identity. This Anonymous Alert is located on the main page of the District Website.
