Traverse City Area Public Schools are being proactive by starting a safety dog pilot program that will ‘sniff out’ items banned on school grounds. TCAPS says they are partnering with Interquest Detection Canines that will bring safety dogs into TCAPS middle schools and high schools during the 2015/2016 school year.
“A key goal for the program is to minimize the disruption that prohibited items can cause to the school day,” said Sander Scott, associate superintendent of Traverse City Area Public Schools. The dogs are Labrador retrievers and have been trained to sniff out items that are prohibited on school grounds. Click here for the rest of the story.
