A workshop regarding campus security of the La Cañada Unified School District is scheduled for Tuesday night.
Representatives from T. Davis & Associates and ASCIP will be present to review the Security Audit report with the district's governing board.
The audit had been scheduled prior to the March 1 suicide of 17-year-old Campbell Taylor, who jumped to his death from the third-story walkway of the high school campus' 7/8 building. Taylor, a senior, lept from the open walkway just before 4 p.m., while students and staff were still on campus.
At the first governing board meeting following Taylor's death, where Superintendent Wendy Sinnette outlined all that district officials were doing to help the students through one of the darkest chapters in La Cañada's history, a speaker addressed the board about campus safety. She asked how the school can prevent other students from jumping to their deaths.
Sinnette said officials will look at all the recommendations made by the security audit, as well as some additional recomendations put forth by LCHS Principal Ian McFeat and 7/8 Principal Anais Wenn. Further, she said, the district wants to make sure all students "feel like they have the opportunity and resources to seek help if they're troubled, or if they're facing tough decisons.''
The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
