“During these public work sessions, trustees will hear from middle-level and high school leadership teams, community partner agencies, and district officials on data, trends, prevention, and education efforts,” NCSD adds.

The district is hoping that the public will provide feedback to help them address the issue.

“We recognize and greatly value the contributions of our entire community towards creating safe and healthy school environments,” said Tanya Southerland, NCSD Public Relations Officer. “We would like to ask for public feedback and attendance during the Jan 13th and 27th, 2020, Board of Trustees Work Session to be held at 6:00 p.m. at Central Services Facility.”
