Community Safety Survey

Barren County School District Students, Staff, Parents and Community Stakeholders -

Our hearts and thoughts continue to be with families, students, and staff who have been impacted by the recent school tragedies in Marshall County and Parkland, Florida.   Like all communities, we are concerned about threats in our community and our schools.  Our approach to school safety is centered around prevention and the efficiency of our response to an emergency situation.  The survey below is focused on additional preventative measures we are considering to implement this school year.  In response to hearing your ideas and thoughts, the Barren County School District is conducting a survey to engage the community stakeholders in dialogue about any additional safety measures or procedures that will make our students and staff feel more comfortable in our schools.  Thank you for lending your voice.  We appreciate your prayers and continued support as we strive to improve as a district.  The link below will take you to the survey.  The data will be immediately tabulated for our use. 

Sincerely,  Bo Matthews

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) enhance student learning through contextual instruction, leadership and personal development, applied learning and real world application. CTSOs work as an integral component of the classroom curriculum and instruction, building upon employability and career skills and concepts through the application and engagement of students in hands-on demonstrations and real life and/or work experiences through a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. CTSO’s help guide students in developing a career path, a program of study and provide opportunities in gaining the skills and abilities needed to be successful in those careers through CTSO activities, programs and competitive events. In addition, students have opportunities to hold leadership positions at the local, state, and national level and attend leadership development conferences to network with other students as well as business and industry partners.
