Operations and Facilities
Building Safety Requirements:

  All facilities have a comprehensive school safety plan based on best practices from GEMA (Georgia Emergency Management Agency). These plans are updated for the current school year.  

 • Camden County Schools has developed a Crisis Counseling Response Team.

 • Through a cooperative effort with the Camden County Sheriff’s Office, three resource deputies have been hired and assigned to the elementary level.  This is in addition to the resource officers provided by the Kingsland Police department and St. Marys Police department. There will now be one deputy per three elementary schools, one resource officer at each middle school, and two resource officers at the high school.

All facilities are monitored by surveillance cameras.

All schools conduct regular fire, lock down, intruder, and severe weather drills.

 • The Camden Area Public Safety Committee has been formed.  The committee has been created to promote safety and security in Camden schools.  There is representation on the committee from local law enforcement, Camden County Schools, fire and rescue, and the local EMA director.

Upgraded doors and access controls are being installed in the schools.
