Provide information regarding the security at the Silver Spring International Field House.

Question#: 10

ANSWER:

The gym for the Silver Spring International Middle School (SSIMS) is located in the field house, which is a separate building not connected to the school that faces Wayne Avenue. It also is adjacent to the track and field space that the school uses for outdoor physical education activities. School staff monitors students as they move between the school and the field house to change classes. Security cameras have been installed that monitor the exterior of the building and the area between the school and the field house. SSIMS has two assigned security assistants. Staff will continue to work with the school leadership to evaluate the security measures in place and whether additional steps may be needed.
