Governor’s Weekly Message: Promoting Effective Learning by Ensuring School Safety
Newport, DE – In his weekly message, filmed at Richey Elementary School , Governor Markell discusses the progress made in Delaware to ensure student safety in public schools through the implementation of comprehensive school safety plans.
“Our children and educators spend more than a third of their time in schools – time that is critical to ensuring our young people have the best chance to reach their potential,” said Governor Markell. “We all want to provide a safe and secure learning environment for our children and we have a sacred responsibility to be ready to respond when anything threatens it. By ensuring our schools are as prepared as possible for any circumstance, we will allow our school staff, teachers and students to remain focused on learning and educating, and that will keep Delaware moving forward.”
