Safety is a main concern, and a first concern for our students. Many measures of safety have been implemented this year such as:
1) Access controls placed on doors of all schools along with a secondary set of doors on the interior of our main entrance to create a lobby or holding area before guests can access the rest of the school.
2) Security cameras have been added or upgraded at every school in strategic and high traffic areas. We also have video cameras installed on every school bus.
3) Each school has a full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to them.
Anderson District Three has teamed with the Iva Police Department to place the most qualified and best fit SROs throughout our district.
Officer Hanks is a product of District 3 schools, graduating from Crescent High School. He began his Law Enforcement career in 2006 and worked for the Anderson County Sheriff's Office. This is his first year as a School Resource Officer. He is married with three children.
