Annotation: Eight essential principles of school safety planning apply to all types of schools and should form the basis of the development of site-specific plans that help create secure, peaceful campuses.
Abstract: The first three principles state that school safety is a personal experience, that threats and risks have multiple causes, and that threats and risks fall on a continuum. Other principles are that school safety planning is comprehensive and ongoing and involves everyone in the school and community, that school safety planning is a problemsolving process, and that committees should strive for the ideal and do what is possible. Planning steps should include establishing the committee, encouraging cooperation, identifying the mission, collecting and interpreting data, designing the plan, implementing the plan, and evaluating the plan.
