Safety Task Force Application

  • The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District values the perspective, expertise and input we receive from our community in the best interest of all our schools. This community of staff, students, families and community members provide insights and teamwork to insure our schools are a community effort.

    To involve our community, the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District is creating a Safety Task Force. The task force will include representatives from district staff, students and families, community members, and first responders who are interested in the recommendations of the development of policies and procedures, that promote safety in our schools and support departments. The Safety Task Force serves as a recommending unit to the Deputy Superintendent.

    In order to better understand who would like to be involved and the perspectives they will bring to our discussions we are using an application process to help form this group. As you consider serving on our Safety Task Force, we’d like you to know our core beliefs and the scope of work we hope to accomplish this school year.
