School Safety Action Report: Recommendations from Action Group for School Safety.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This report outlines specific actions that can be taken to improve the climate of educational opportunity and to reduce criminal incidents on school grounds, school buses, and at school functions. The recommendations made here were formulated by a committee consisting of teachers, school officials, police officers, attorneys, local and state government officials, parents, and other concerned individuals. The suggestions, divided into seven sections, specify what schools, school districts, state agencies, communities, legislators, parents, and students can do to reduce school violence. Some of the proposals include: developing and implementing a comprehensive Safe School Plan to provide a safe environment for all students and the adults who serve them; establishing a District Safety Plan; supplying needed resources and training to local school districts; making available social and recreational organizations for youth; asking employers to grant 4 hours paid leave per year so that employees who are parents can become involved in their childrens' schools; making education a top priority; and becoming involved in school activities.
