Creating a positive school climate and developing a fair and consistently enforced discipline system are fundamental steps in making school campuses safe places in which to learn and work. This book is designed to assist in the strategic planning of effective school safety by helping a school to analyze where one is, where one should go, and how to get there by using the available resources. Chapter 1 suggests ways to assess school climate and how to address problem areas. It offers administrators and teachers guidelines for developing an effective school discipline plan. Chapter 2 examines the reasons students are absent and eventually drop out of school, giving strategies for increasing attendance. Chapter 3 shows how schools, working in cooperation with parents, law enforcement, social service agencies and other community members, can promote the health and safety of children. Chapter 4 describes the role the school law enforcement or campus security personnel can play as well as outlining other methods in making campuses physically safer and more secure. Each chapter contains sample assessment surveys, model policy statements, and references. (LMS)
