Penn-Harris-Madison has been recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as a school of Promising Practice in the area of safety and security. P-H-M’s three layer approach Promising Practice is one of 200 education or wrap-around service programs to be recognized by the Department in honor of Indiana’s bicentennial celebration.
The layered security approach is implemented in all 15 of our schools. The security layers begin with our entrances and access controls. Other security layers include internal corridors and panic buttons locking off our learning communities. Finally, classroom security and training is critical. We have an ongoing commitment to school safety and have taken a leadership role in education and training.
Providing a safe and secure learning environment is the highest priority for P-H-M. Safe learning environments foster student growth and educational excellence.
P-H-M’s three layered safety approach will be shared with educators across the state of Indiana as an example of best practices that are having a positive impact on Hoosier students.
