Seneca High considers new security monitor

Seneca High School Superintendent Jim Carlson talked this week about adding a new security post at the school. 

He gathered information about security monitors in other schools to create a job description unique to Seneca.

“This is a brand new position for our school,” Carlson said. “I can tell you that the person we hire for the position will not be armed.

"With someone in this position, we'll be assured that the school is compliant with all of our policies. To give you a safety example, the security monitor would check to make sure all doors are locked when they're supposed to be locked. He'll make sure there isn't something left in the door jamb to prevent the door from being completely locked and an unauthorized person wouldn't be able to gain access.”
Job responsibilities could include assisting in the maintenance of a safe and orderly environment in the non-classroom areas of the high school, parking lot and grounds.
Other duties might include maintaining an orderly flow of hallway foot traffic and car traffic in the parking lot, monitoring restrooms throughout the day, keeping unwanted visitors out of the building and off the school grounds, reporting maintenance concerns to school personnel and enforcing all school rules.
Carlson said a couple of people have applied for the position and that more information will be forthcoming soon.
