"I continue to not only be passionate about enhancing security but also thrilled with the ongoing collaboration of our Board of Education, Superintendent Jennifer A. Fano, building administration, security personnel and Chief Stokoe's police department.
"I nominated the Randolph School District and our police department because of the incredible effort that went in to enhancing our security protocols," Mrs. Iosso said. "It was validating to learn that a National Safety Agency agreed that we were in the forefront of making school security a priority. Plans include continuing these efforts moving forward!"
The School Safety Advocacy Council National Conference selected the Randolph Township School District for this award because of the extensive collaboration between the Randolph Board of Education, Superintendent Jennifer A. Fano, the school district administration, school security personnel, the school community and the Randolph Police Department, said Randolph High School Principal Debbie Iosso.
“We spent the previous summer and all year training administration and staff in current best practices relative to active shooter/violent intruder drills, “ Mrs. Iosso said. “We also hosted parent sessions district wide and will continue enhanced security training for all staff and students next year and include more extensive reunification drills as part of our protocols.”
Randolph Superintendent Jennifer A. Fano also commended Mrs. Iosso. “I would like to highlight Mrs. Iosso’s efforts to nurture the collaborative relationship with local law enforcement as well as her initiative to advocate for training for our district administrative team.”
