Resolve to make a difference in 2019—and do it right here in our community! Don’t miss your chance to be part of this amazing opportunity to advance the safety of our Oviedo schools!
In recent years, mass shootings and violence in our schools and around the nation has caused us to wonder what we can do to make a difference. As we spoke with Dr. Walt Griffin, Superintendent of Seminole County Schools, and Captain Rick Francis of Seminole County Sheriff's School Safety Division, it was determined that many of our schools need more and updated security cameras.
The Oviedo Church Community wants to partner with its residents in this worthwhile endeavor so we are asking businesses, parents and other concerned individuals to join us. Our hope is to expedite Seminole County's 5-year-plan into a 3-year-plan by raising funds to purchase the necessary security cameras to improve school safety.

I am excited to partner with churches in the Oviedo community on a school safety project that will help protect our most vulnerable citizens of Seminole County. A safe school is a place where students can learn and teachers can teach free of intimidation and fear. Creating safe, orderly, and welcoming learning environments is critical to educating and preparing all of our children and youth to achieve their highest potential.

I heartily express my endorsement for the Secure Oviedo Schools project. Incredible things happen when a community comes together, and we inspire each other. Protecting our children and educators is of the utmost importance, and this project is a positive step for our community.
