School Safety

Keeping our staff and students safe is a top priority in Tenino School District! We are in a constant state of improvement as we train, implement, and test various safety protocols and programs throughout our District. Our goal is to ensure everyone feels safe at work and play in our schools. Learn more about our safety structures on this webpage.

Capital Projects Levy - - Funds School Safety and Security Installations & Upgrades

What is a Capital Levy??

Capital levies are the main source of funding to ensure that every student has a safe, welcoming learning environment. School districts receive limited state or federal funding for improvements to school buildings.

School Resource Officer (SRO) is a commissioned law enforcement officer in WA with sworn authority to make arrests. They are specifically deployed in community-oriented policing and assigned by the employing police department or sheriff's office to work in schools to build positive relationships with students and respond to potential crimes affecting or occurring in or around K-12 schools. SROs focus on keeping students out of the criminal justice system. SROs are not school district employees, but rather are employed by the law enforcement agency which has a contractual arrangement with that district.
