Corona/Norco – The School Safety Advocacy Council recently awarded the Corona-Norco Unified School District (CNUSD) with the 2015 Exemplary School Safety Initiative Award for its Project Safety Net Program.

CNUSD was the only district in California to receive this award, and one of eight in the entire nation.

The Project Safety Net Program is a partnership between CNUSD and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, whose mission is to provide a safe and caring environment so students can excel in their academic studies. The principal goal of Project Safety Net is to identify and anticipate safety concerns and systematically address each concern through the application of best practices.

On Sept. 15, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors recognized and honored CNUSD and Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputies Cooper, Huggins, and Thompson for receiving this prestigious award. These Deputies serve as school resource officers for Eleanor Roosevelt High School, Norco High School, and five middle schools in CNUSD.  Each of these Deputies utilized hard work, dedication, and integrity to serve the staff and promote a safe learning environment for the students.
