School Safety

  • See Something Say Something

    The Tuscaloosa City Schools, in partnership with the City of Tuscaloosa and the Police Department, is committed to student safety. In fact, this commitment led to bringing School Resource Officers (SROs) to all schools K-12. The Tuscaloosa City School has established three ways in which students can share concerns about school safety and the well-being of fellow students.



    Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson and Superintendent Dr. Mike Daria sent a letter home to families in January 2019 on the topic. Read the letter.
