Project Student Safety is a collective of parents who follow the Lake County School District, the Lake County School Board, and the public offices that affect the safety and well-being of our children in Lake County Schools.  As the title suggests, our primary concern is safety and well-being of students and our mission is to secure the policy, resources, and determination of those we elect in pursuit of those goals.

We have maintained a safe distance from issues within education that politically divide people in order to unify as many people as possible around situations that have the potential to injure or kill children.  While many groups claim to be non-partisan only to promote partisan goals, we have no political allegiance to any political group and base our views solely based on the greatest opportunity to maximize student safety and well-being (a goal that should unify ALL people).

We have no tolerance for someone who is willing to sacrifice the life of a child to achieve a lower tax rate, to purchase no software for a classroom, or to give an educator a raise.  When a naive child, as young as 5, or as old as 17 has to travel unsafe and unreasonably long distances of travel because of State Compulsory School Attendance Laws, there is an  a-priori right to expect to not become dead as a result of that requirement.  If a school does not have the means to assure that safety, it violates the very social contract that binds a society together, and nullifies an obligation to attend that school.  Where as we are not the courts, nor do we agree with not obtaining an education, we are serious at the degree of responsibility that we place on the school district to deliver on their duty to reinstate safe transportation routes for each and every student in Lake County Schools.  We are watching Bill Mathias, Debbie Stivender, Tod Howard, Roseanne Brandeburg, and Kyleen Fischer at every board meeting (through streaming media) and will report on their actions and inactions.

We have a way for you to speak you mind without anonymously about the situation.  Just hit ‘publish’ on the top right and submit a blog proposal.  If it does not violate our standards or mission, we will post it.

While we report the news, our main purpose is to increase the standards of safety and the level of quality education our children receive, and we treat this blog as a tool to meet those ends. On issues of public concern, we have created pages under the policy section.  We welcome people to submit their ideas, submit additional information, or consider changes to those based on new or newly found information.  The purpose for the policy pages is to provide space on topics that our both inside and outside the scope of our mission.  We try to provide all available peer-reviewed information on subject areas, and will (if relevant) provide editorials and informal information on topics.  If the topic is a political partisan topic, we provide information that is charitable to each side and work to present the issues in a non-biased form.  We welcome participation from the community in this regard.
