General Steve Marshall is inviting public and private schools throughout the state to submit applications for the 2018 Alabama Safe Schools Initiative Awards of Excellence.
The Attorney General’s Office will honor private school winners from north, central and south Alabama, in addition to the winners from each of the state’s eight public school board districts.
“These awards offer a valuable opportunity to honor schools that are succeeding with outstanding safety plans, to recognize procedures that work well and to encourage implementation of these methods throughout Alabama to keep our children safer,” said Attorney General Marshall.
Attorney General Marshall plans to visit winning schools this spring to personally present the award in honor of each school’s accomplishment.
Applications are being accepted now through Feb. 25, 2019.
More information about criteria for the awards may be found at the Attorney General’s website at https://ago.alabama.gov/Documents/2018-SSI-Nomination-Form.pdf.
Please note that nominations are requested to be sent in a digital PDF, if possible, to ssi@ago.state.al.us.
The nominations will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges.
