01 - 15 - 2014 J.-Co. School Board discusses communication & safety concerns
[LS[ - District-wide safety was one of the concerns that were talked about last night at the Juniata County School District board's workshop meeting. The directors were concerned about the difficulty of communication within the buidlings. Office staff are able to contact classrooms but not the other way around & other buildings are lacking office-to-classroom intercom systems. Other concerns were over the growing number of students & the decreasing number of staff with teachers trying to balance too many responsibilities as they try to compensate for positions that have been cut. This, along with the age of some of the buildings, class sizes, & learning space were also brought up as areas of concern.
