School Site Safety Update


Work was supposed to begin on the locks for the external doors last week, however there was a supply chain issue with parts required for the upgrades.  SFUSD will provide Mr. Alcantar with a new timeline next week.  We do not have information about Columbine locks for classroom doors or for the PA system...


We are requesting that a specific BOE Commissioner be chosen to stay on top of this situation and see it through completion at all school sites.
