During his regular report at Monday’s Lakeshore Public Schools Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Greg Eding informed board members the district has installed several vape detectors in several district bathrooms.
“We’re looking at the possibility of installing these in all secondary bathrooms,” Eding said. “Right now, we are just in the testing phase with those.”
Eding specificerede ikke, hvilket mærke af dampdetektorer, der testes, men en almindelig enhed installeret i mange skoler i løbet af de sidste par år i skoler kaldes HALO Smart Sensor. Ifølge produktets hjemmeside overvåger dampdetektorer "nøjagtigt luftkvaliteten og registrerer farlige dampkemikalier, når de er til stede i skolens badeværelser, og sender meddelelsesadvarsler til tildelte fakultetsmedlemmer. De er en effektiv og overkommelig løsning, og deres synlige tilstedeværelse virker afskrækkende.”
During the meeting, Eding also introduced the district’s new School Resource Officer, Michael Dorr. Dorr is a 25-year veteran of law enforcement, and has previous experience as a school liaison officer prior to joining the Lincoln Township Police Department.
“[Dorr] has been busy getting into buildings and developing relationships with students and staff,” Eding said. “He will soon be presenting to classrooms on several topics such as the dangers of vaping and other high-risk behaviors.”
In other school safety business, Dorr announced that a group of administrators attended a crisis training event hosted by the Michigan State Police at Western Michigan University.
“This event helped with fine-tuning our threat assessment process,” Eding said. “There will be a follow-up training that’s coming up in January.”
