Safety & Engagement Team

  • SET Logo

    The Ken-Ton School District is partnering with Vista Security Group, a NYS-licensed security agency headquartered in Amherst, to enhance safety and student engagement across the district. Through this partnership, there are four School Safety Officers to complement the district's extremely successful School Resource Officer program through the Town of Tonawanda Police Department at Kenmore East and Kenmore West. Vista will provide one School Safety Officer at both the Franklin and Hoover complexes, one on a rotating basis at Edison, Holmes and Lindbergh, and one at Kenmore Junior/Senior High. This group is called the Safety and Engagement Team (SET). This team will focus on:

    • Increasing support in our buildings to sustain a school culture characterized by trusting and supportive relationships
    • Improving the quality of interactions among students and staff as steps toward implementing common-sense security policies and procedures
    • Creating more consistent and positive points of contact and support for our students and families to reduce potential for violence
    • Conveying a district-wide message of care and respect for all students founded on the pillars of safety and belonging
