Let’s Make It Official

We would like to confirm your participation in the Safe and Sound Schools Parent Council. Please watch this short video from Alissa Parker, Safe and Sound Schools co-founder. At the end of the video, you will find a link to download our letter of commitment. Please read, sign, and return the letter by emailing a scanned PDF or photo of the document to Amy Shanler.

Read on for some more information, and bookmark this page, as we will continue to update it with useful information to help on your Parent Council journey. We are excited to work with you, and help you improve the safety of schools in your community. If you have any questions, please email Amy Shanler.

What’s Next?

To help manage our Parent Council, we will be using volunteer management software donated from Raptor Technologies, a Safe and Sound Schools partner. Please be on the lookout in the coming weeks for a link to create your own profile in our volunteer community.

In addition, we will soon begin our online training program. Here are the tentative dates/times for our training sessions. We will confirm these and send out the links as we get closer.
