ROXBURY, NJ - Former Roxbury Police Chief James Simonetti, who now serves as director of security for Roxbury schools, will discuss the district's "comprehensive security plan" at an upcoming school board meeting.

Simonetti will "provide an overview of Roxbury’s mission regarding security that revolves around four key components: Healthy school environment; counseling for troubled/problem students; effective relationships with law enforcement and first responders and controlled access to school buildings and grounds," said district spokeswoman Ann Rhodes.

The meeting will take place Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln/Roosevelt School.

"One of the district goals for the 2016/2017 school year identified school security as a priority," said Rhodes in a press release. She said Simonetti’s presentation will cover "the accomplishments of the first 100 days" including implementation of the "ALICE" training and drills, revamping of security officers responsibilities, implementation of the “Informacast” messaging system and updates to the district-wide crisis plans.

Rhodes noted the security changes were explained to the district staff, buildings and grounds personnel, vendors, and the PTA/PTO organizations. She said Simonetti and Roxbury Schools Superintendent Loretta Radulic, "in an effort to further communicate this initiative," attended faculty meetings and PTA/PTO sessions "to get feedback on the implementation of the program as well as other security concerns district-wide."
