The Milford School District was recognized at the November 19, 2018 Milford Board of Education meeting for compliance with the Omnibus School Safety Act for the 2017-2018 academic year. This acknowledgement from the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DSHS) was presented by DEMA Deputy Director Chris Murtha. A Certificate of Compliance signed by DSHS Cabinet Secretary Robert Coupe was presented to each principal, as well as a decal that can be displayed on-site indicating compliance to all school visitors.
The Omnibus School Safety Act was created in 2012, to establish a formal framework for comprehensive school safety plans. Since then, the Milford School District has worked diligently to ensure all schools meet the requirements for compliance including a designated school safety team, a school safety plan, ongoing training, and routine safety drills.
Dr. Kevin Dickerson, Superintendent of the Milford School District, expressed his gratitude to the Department of Safety and Homeland Security for recognizing the district’s hard work ensuring the safety of students, staff, and school visitors. Dr. Dickerson also commended each school’s staff and administration for continuing to maintain compliance and prioritize safety throughout the district.
