  • Committed funds to place school resource officers on our campuses
  • Held Community Safety Meetings with the Police Chiefs of Marina, Seaside and Monterey
  • Trained administrators and staff to handle emergency situations and communications

  • Updated crisis management plans and practiced safety drills, intruder alerts and lockdowns

  • Installed security fencing, and obtained a Secure our Schools Planning and Implementation Grant ($275,000)

  • Purchased emergency communications systems for all district sites

  • Contracted Canine Inspection Services to monitor our schools

  • Implemented ParentLink mobile communications application to increase instant communication

  • Increased and promoted the availability of mental health resources to students and families

  • Created an anonymous Tip Line for reporting safety issues or concerns on the MPUSD website, school webpages and via ParentLink mobile communications application
