Today In The Upper Cumberland: Understanding Students And School Safety

Dr. Jerry Boyd and more talk school safety programs at Putnam Co School District.

We can all agree that we want to protect students while in school. Across the Upper Cumberland and across the nation we look at how to make schools safer. What are the warning signs and programs in place to address students at risk? Today In The Upper Cumberland, we look at the school systems in place, how the communication works, and how teachers are trained to make schools safer with members of the Putnam County School District. We talk with Dr. Jerry Boyd, Director of Schools, Corby King the Attendance Supervisor, and Melanie Bussel the Students Services Supervisor.
