GRPS teachers, parents voice concerns at school safety forum | #hacking | #aihp

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — District leaders at Grand Rapids Public Schools held a community forum Saturday afternoon after two guns were confiscated from elementary school students in May. In total, four guns have been found on students at GRPS this school year.

The forum came after district leaders made the decision to ban backpacks on May 10.

During Saturday’s meeting, parents, community members and GRPS teachers wanted their questions answered and their voices heard.

“I think today’s meeting was productive to get the community together, to realize that it’s us — and our teachers and our principals — versus an ineffective administration,” said Lucas Leverett, a GRPS parent.

GRPS held a community forum on school safety on May 20, 2023.

When it comes to the next steps, community members and administrators seem to be far from consensus. District leaders said they are working with Jason Russell, a secure education consultant. Russell will be working with GRPS to assess every building in the district and conduct a safety report.
