THE BRONX -

The current New York City Schools Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education spoke with News 12 about his plans for the fall.

Richard Carranza says schools are teaming up with the NYPD to ensure all students are safe in class.

In addition, Carranza says he is excited about creating a positive climate and culture in schools.

"If they hear something, they see something, they suspect something, they have a trusted adult that they can report that too," Carranza says. "They know that they will be kept anonymous, but that incident, or that potential incident, will be followed up on."

Students can anonymously report suspicious activity to teachers, which he says has already prevented many potential crimes.

On Wednesday, Carranza announced he is adding nine new executive superintendent positions to city schools.
