When the Yakima County Gang Commission meets Tuesday it will hear about a school safety co-op program that is helping small districts deal with expensive safety measures.

Randy Town, safety and security coordinator for ESD 105 in Yakima, says it is vital that smaller districts pool resources:

Individually, schools have very few internal resources, especially the smaller districts because they’re so concentrated on the learning environment.

Twenty-one of the 25 school districts in the valley are part of the cooperative that pools resources to create school safety programs, which also includes Heritage University’s.

Town says the Yakima School District and other larger districts handle their own safety measures. But he says the smaller districts are the most in need of funding the reason for the cooperative.

Tuesday’s meeting is set for 1:30 p.m. in the ESD 105 offices, 33 S. Second St. in Yakima.
