This week brought the state safety inspector to the OJSHS. The newly created division of the Idaho Office of School Safety & Security paid the facility a visit. The inspection and report is more than just looking at our regular safety items. The areas included: Culture, Community, Policy and Training, Security, Facility, Operations, and Student Supervision. The report is simply a snapshot of the happenings of the school and indicated areas of improvement as well as areas of strength. The full report can be seen on our district website under the announcements tab. The OES facility is scheduled for an inspection on October 26th.
