Abbey Kidwell Serves on Gov. School Security Task Force


Abbey KidwellAbbey Kidwell, fourth-grade teacher at South Clinton Elementary, has been invited to serve on Gov. Haslam’s School Security Task Force. The purpose of this task force is to recommend quick and practical responses to school security concerns. She will be representing an educator viewpoint during the meetings set to begin this week. The group is expected to develop strategies as reverberations continue nationally from the latest school violence incident in Parkland, Florida. Haslam said that he wants the group’s recommendations before the General Assembly’s expected adjournment in April.

Kidwell has served for the past three years on the Governor’s Teacher Cabinet resulting in Haslam’s visit to South Clinton Elementary last year. She is able to bring an objective, honest, and critical viewpoint to issues pressing education. Director Kelly Johnson states, “I am pleased that he has reached out to Mrs. Kidwell to serve in this capacity. She has the perfect skill set to accurately convey the needs and concerns of teachers across the state. From an administrator standpoint, I am thankful that he is reaching out to receive input from a variety of stakeholders so informed decisions can be made toward school safety in all systems.”
