Higley USD will work on a schools safety plan in the coming week.

The district’s governing board directed Associate Superintendent Dawn Foley to work on such a plan at the conclusion of a special governing board meeting Aug. 21 that lasted almost 3 1/2 hours. Nearly all of that was spent in executive session.

The plan is to come back to the board for review at its regular meeting Aug. 26. No parameters for such a plan were discussed during the regular session.

No other business was discussed.
