On November 5th the Naperville 203 Board of Education appointed Louis C. Cammiso the Director of Safety and Security. In the newly created position of Director of Safety and Security, Mr. Cammiso will assist District and school staff in the development and implementation of “best practices” in safety and security procedures, provide training in safety and security for all staff.
Mr. Cammiso recently retired from the Naperville Police Department where he was a Commander of the Office of Professional Standards, as well as Public Information Officer.

During the 2018-19 school year, Naperville 203 schools are transitioning to a new safety response plan known as ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate). In conjunction with ALICE, Naperville 203 has initiated other safety initiatives including building modifications with updated front entrances with guest screening software; physical environment enhancements including camera systems; IT threat management systems to protect our digital environment, and continuous weather related drills to prepare our students in the event of an emergency, just to name a few.
