Advisory Committees/Volunteers

Safety & Security Task Force
The newly established Safety & Security Task Force (SSTF) was formed in the Fall of 2023. The group will spend time over seven sessions engaging collaboratively around topics such as environmental/facility design, staff/student/family training, relationships with local law enforcement, security cameras and surveillance, and resource officer/armed security. The group will work to develop recommendations to the superintendent that will help ensure safe environments for our students, staff, and community members now and into the future.

Facilities Planning Committee
Established in the fall of 2022, this team of community members and staff members analyzed recommendations of a recent review of current facilities and enrollment forecasts, discussed program plans, and made recommendations to the Lynden School District Board of Directors regarding long-range capital facility improvements.
