Annotation: This resource guide is designed to help school administrators accomplish five major goals in establishing safe school environments: assess their school climate, determine their safe school goals, develop a plan for reaching those goals, build a support network for policy development and implementation, and assist in continuing evaluation.
Abstract: The best safe school plans integrally involve the entire community, including parents, students, law enforcement, business and community leaders, and youth-serving professionals. The guide specifically outlines factors that affect school safety, discusses how to conduct a school site assessment, summarizes some legal aspects of safe school planning, and describes the issues that school administrators should consider when developing policies and procedures.
