The Office of Safe & Supportive Schools
Derry Township School District and the Office of Safe and Supportive Schools are committed to providing for the health, safety, and welfare of all students, staff, and visitors. We have adopted a Comprehensive plan that raises the bar for student achievement within a safe learning environment and prepares each and every child to be successful as global citizens in the 21st Century. In doing this, it is imperative that any barriers to student learning also be addressed.
