Security has always been a priority within the Fort Wayne Community Schools. This commitment became clearly apparent with the creation of a Security Department in 1995. The mission of the FWCS Security Department is to attempt to provide a safe learning environment for all students, staff, and visitors to our properties and events. While our teachers have the opportunity to use the best and most up to date teaching tools and philosophies, if a child does not feel safe and secure while attending school, then their ability to learn is greatly diminished.
We attempt to achieve this goal through emphasizing a collaborative approach to safety and security. We routinely provide and receive information from our local law enforcement providers, emergency responders, and fellow educators on a local, statewide, and national level. In addition we are proud to be able to state that many of the programs and initiatives that we have developed since 1995 have been copied by numerous school systems and their law enforcement partners across the country.
You can have the greatest curriculum offerings, the finest teachers, and the most outstanding facilities and resources, however, if kids don't feel safe, and their parents do not believe that you are aggressively attempting to provide a safe and secure learning environment for their children, then you will not be able to reach your full potential as a successful learning institution.
