The High Desert Education Service District participates in a network school districts and public agencies to discuss and enhance policies and procedures that promote and ensure safety for students, teachers and staff in Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties.
The goal of the alliance is to provide safe and secure school environments through community and interagency partnerships among students, parents, education, mental health, community justice and law enforcement.
The purpose of this network is to increase the ability of all organizations to work consistently and in collaboration to assure safe and secure schools for the children of the Crook and Deschutes counties.
The SSA does not decide policy, but rather serves in an advisory capacity to partner organizations, recommending policy and procedures that are consistent throughout the region. All partner SSA members operate in accordance with applicable statutes, policies and procedures of their individual districts or agencies. The SSA works on a consensus basis, sharing information and perspectives to increase knowledge, communication and ability of all partners in creating safe school environments and preventing violence.
The SSA meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month from September through June, 8:00 – 9:30 AM at the HDESD Redmond administrative offices.
