Safety Concerns Arise at North Penn High School Forum After Student Attack

NORTH WALES, Pennsylvania – Concerned parents and community members gathered at North Penn High School for a school safety forum following a recent violent incident at Pennbrook Middle School that left a 7th grader injured. The meeting was held to address issues surrounding school safety, policies, and accountability within the district.

During the forum, attendees raised questions regarding the response mechanisms in place for students who repeatedly break rules or act aggressively. Parents expressed their worries about the safety of their children and sought clarity on the district’s safety enhancements over the years. Many wanted to know if proper precautionary measures were taken at Pennbrook before the incident occurred.

Dr. Todd Bauer, the superintendent of the North Penn School District, acknowledged the concerns raised by parents and emphasized the importance of creating a safe and secure environment for students. However, he refrained from disclosing information about specific students deemed a threat, citing a judge’s order on the matter.

Some questioned the effectiveness of the current safety measures in place and demanded more transparency from school officials regarding the assault at Pennbrook.

In response to ongoing concerns, Stock and Leader was appointed as a third party to investigate the attack further. Additional details are expected to be disclosed during a scheduled meeting on Thursday, providing more insights into the incident and the district’s response to ensure the safety of all students. The community remains vigilant in seeking accountability and improvements in school safety protocols to prevent future incidents from occurring.
