"We have started a movement," Superintendent Alrita Morgan said to the crowd gathered in the EHS auditorium for the second Take Back Our Children Community Task Force meeting, held on May 18, 2004.

The five Task Groups established, and their goals, are as follows:

Outreach from schools
Links to schools
Guidelines for assessing risks
- Student Task Group
Students on committees
National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Forums
- Safe Schools Task Group
Standards for acceptable behavior

Accountability for behavior
- Partners and Resources Task Group
- Awareness Task Group
More Task Group information, including contact and meeting information, will be posted on this website shortly.
