New Jersey Schools: Surprise Inspections to Check Security Procedures

The debate may still be ongoing regarding gun control, but New Jersey plans on keeping up with security policies going on at its schools.

The New Jersey Board of Education said surprise inspections will start in late January or early February.

New Jersey’s Department of Education’s Preparedness and Emergency Planning Office recommended the inspections after the Connecticut shootings, according to an Associated Press report on CBS Philly. Officials want the schools to be prepared to conduct unplanned lockdowns and security drills. Current state requirements are for lockdown drills and shooting drills to be performed twice a year.

Barbara Morgan, NJDOE Director of Communications and Media Relations said feedback will be given to school officials after the inspections are over. Morgan said, according to nj1015.com, “This could have been done better, or when you implemented this aspect this is something you want to think about…There will be conversations with principals, teachers, heads of the districts- it’s about providing feedback and information for districts so they feel they are prepared in times of emergency.”

“We want our parents to feel safe about sending their kids off to school every day.”

Morgan said a 10-point checklist would be included in the inspections, but details have not yet been decided. She said a school would not receive a penalty for poor procedures, according to phillyburbs.com Morgan called the inspections “an information session,” saying that the state would work with districts that score below average.

Inspections are expected to continue for several weeks.
