• The purpose of the Safety & Security Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff, district property and other key stakeholders that are part of the school district. Through a proactive approach that includes staff training and partnerships with local first responders, Rock Hill Schools works to ensure our nearly 18,000 students, 2,400 employees, and visitors to our campuses are safe.

    Our department oversees visitor management systems, student reunification, and SafeSchools staff training and compliance.

    Please feel free to contact our office for any concerns.
