Section 1309-B of the Pennsylvania Public School Code provides that the chief school administrator of a school entity shall appoint a school administrator as the school safety and security coordinator for the school entity. The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) have interpreted the term "school administrator" to mean any individual who currently serves or who will serve in an administrative capacity in a school entity that meets the coordinator requirements.
The duties of the coordinator include, overseeing all school police officers, school resource officers, school security guards, and policies and procedures in the school entity, and reporting directly to the chief school administrator, and several specific duties, such as reviewing school policies and procedures and other tasks. Please see Section 1309-B for the full list of duties and responsibilities of coordinators.
