Dr. Ed Manansala: We Stand With Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
00:00 AM - February 27, 2018
Dear El Dorado County Community,
Our hearts go out to the families and educators involved in the tragedy that occurred on February 14, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. The safety of students and staff is always our top priority, and while we hope that nothing like this happens in our county, we are well prepared. EDCOE maintains strong partnerships with every public agency in El Dorado County, and we work closely with the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, Placerville CHP, Placerville City Police Department and South Lake Tahoe City Police Department to train and continually update our safety plans to include current safety practices. We are confident in our plans and relationships with law enforcement, and together we will continue our commitment to providing students and staff with a safe place to learn and work.
We are prepared to respond, but most importantly, we are proactively working to create positive school environments to ensure students have access to mental health supports and services.
Dr. Ed Manansala, County Superintendent of Schools
