Phoenix Union High School District debuts new safety division focused on lockdowns, mental health
It might still feel like summer outside, but the school year is kicking off for students in Arizona. And for districts across the state, safety is top of mind.
The devastating shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, happened just a few months ago, leaving 19 students and two teachers dead.
Phoenix Union High School District is one the largest in the state, and they have just launched a new safety division focused on things like lockdowns and preventing school shootings as well as things like mental health and well being for students.
Claudio Coria is the executive director of that new safety division.
