Fact Sheet: New school lockdown strategy

Marion Community Schools is adopting a new strategy for its school building lockdown procedures. 

These changes are not a result of new concerns or new dangers. They simply reflect shifting attitudes on how best to address such a situation, and they also align with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Education.

The philosophy behind this new strategy is to empower staff and students to make decisions and take action during a crisis.
