WHAT IS THE SAFETY, SECURITY, & SUPPORT REFERENDUM?

Center Grove Community School Corporation is seeking an 11.5 cent ($0.115) tax increase via a referendum question on the November 2019 ballot.

The funds raised will pay for additional safety and security measures, including live security monitoring of facilities, increased security response time/added deterrents, added mental health and classroom supports for students.

Data-Driven Decision

The decision to seek a referendum came from two sets of data: an audit in Spring 2018 by Safe Haven’s International, one of the world’s leading school safety organizations, to conduct a safety audit of the school district in the spring of 2018, and a survey of parents, staff, and community members, via Thought Exchange, in the spring of 2019.  

Both the Safe Haven’s Safety Audit and the Thought Exchange resulted in recommendations in these areas:

  • Improve Live Monitoring
  • Improve Response Time/Add Deterrents
  • Add Mental Health Supports/Screenings
  • Improved Climate/Relationship/Social-Emotional Supports
