Derry Township School District has contracted with Vulnerability Solutions Group, LLC to perform an audit of campus security. This type of comprehensive examination of our school’s physical facilities and operational procedures is one the district contracts outside experts to conduct every few years. Over the course of the next several weeks, community members may see Vulnerability Solutions Group staff members taking photographs of buildings, making detailed notes outside our schools and even approaching parents/guardians to ask questions about school safety procedures. Please be assured this is part of the assessment process and your cooperation is appreciated.
