DPS Committment to Student Safety

In order for teachers to teach and students to learn, schools must be safe.  That is why providing safe and orderly learning environments is a top priority for Durham Public Schools.

The entire community has committed resources to keep our schools safe.  In 1999, DPS established a formal partnership with other local agencies, including the Durham Police Department, Durham County Sheriff’s Office, Durham County Emergency Management, Durham City Fire Department, and Durham County Health Department, American Red Cross- Durham Chapter, Emergency Medical Services, and the Durham Center to strengthen school safety.
