The attached self-assessment and narrative serves to assure that Hillsborough County Public Schools is in compliance with Florida Statute 1006.07(6), Safety and Security Best Practices.  Strategies and actions were reviewed for the 2016/2017 school year by a district committee, which included members of Safety and Risk Management, School Security, Student Nutrition Services, Transportation, School Health Services, Exceptional Student Services, Athletics, Student Services, Professional Development, Teaching and Learning, Administration, Informational Services, and Compliance.
