School Safety Check Book.
National School Safety Center, Malibu, CA.
Creating a positive school climate and developing a fair and consistently enforced discipline system are fundamental steps in making school campuses safe. Model programs and policies are presented to minimize student and staff victimization risks by helping evaluate where a school district stands in terms of effective school safety and school crime-prevention programs. The publication's four chapters discuss the following topics: (1) school climate and discipline; (2) school attendance; (3) personal safety; and (4) school security. Designed as a practitioner's handbook, each chapter contains the following sections: the issues, assessing the problems, prevention strategies, response strategies, sample programs, bibliography, and an appended assessment survey. Two chapters contain additional appendixes supplying information on attendance policies, the Chicago Network program, and district policies and procedures. (MLF)
