The mandate of the National School Safety Center (NSSC) is to focus national attention on cooperative solutions to problems that disrupt the educational process. Special emphasis is placed on efforts to rid schools of crime, violence, and drugs, and on programs to improve student discipline, attendance, achievement and school climate. NSSC provides technical assistance, offers legal and legislative aid, and produces publications and films. Some of these programs include the production of the award winning docudrama, "What's Wrong With This Picture?" sponsoring the annual "America's Safe Schools Week"; and the organization of the 1987 national "Schoolyard Bully Practicum." These and several other programs are highlighted in the document. (PPB)
