ZCS response to Sandy Hook Tragedy


Heightened communication about safety since the tragic school shooting in Connecticut has landed Zionsville Community Schools a free consultation with the safety specialist of a multinational business.

While this company is engaged in a very different enterprise than our own, and they do not have student lives or public spaces to protect, we are certain that we will learn things about technologies and strategies that are not in the regular stream of information of the multiple school safety specialists we have certified and serving in our schools.

Our ongoing safety and security collaboration with local law enforcement and fire/rescue will get a supercharge during the holidays as multiple meetings and walkthroughs are slated to occur. This ongoing relationship is of paramount importance in keeping students and employees safe in so many places while they are engaged in ZCS activities.

We salute first-responders and our own trained school safety specialists. Constant running and rerunning of simulations and conducting live drills are the practices that make employment of emergency protocols automatic, and therefore, lifesaving.


Dr. Scott Robison is the superintendent of Zionsville Community Schools.
