Columbia Golden Eagles

On Tuesday, May 3, 2022, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm in the Columbia Central Jr. – Sr. High School Auditorium, the Columbia School District Board of Education and administration is holding a Town Hall meeting to engage in dialogue around school safety issues in a forum that allows discourse.

School safety is everyone’s responsibility and is our number one priority.  Panelists at the Town Hall meeting will include a representative from the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, representatives from law enforcement, Columbia School District counselors, and the Columbia School District Board of Education.  

Our topics of discussion will be: School Safety, School Communication, Accurate sources of information, Disciplinary consequences, school policies and student privacy, and Emotional support and impact of threat disruptions on our children’s emotional well-being.

As part of preparing for Tuesday, I would like to share with you the letter from Prosecuting Attorney Jerry Jarzynka that was sent in December, which discusses school threats.

When we all share in the responsibility of making Columbia School District a positive safe learning environment for our students, the children of our community reap the benefits.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 517-592-6641 or email
