The safety and security of our students is our top priority. On March 20, the Copley-Fairlawn City School District hosted a community forum on school safety, where approximately 140 parents, community members, staff members and local law enforcement in attendance commended the district for its past and present response to school safety. Additionally, concerns were voiced over the need for school resource officers, door barricades, additional cameras, metal detectors, and mental health support for our students.
