Safer Schools Program Assessment Report.
Eugene School District 4J, OR.
Students in school are no longer isolated from violence and unlawful activity. Lack of resources is hindering school officials' efforts to deal with the problem and keep campuses safe. The city of Eugene (Oregon) and Eugene Public Schools have implemented a jointly funded Safer Schools Program that added one campus monitor to each high school and two full-time police officers. There is a need for broad understanding of and support for the program. This report recommends expanded services for K-8 and updated district policy language. Technical training for Safer Schools personnel and site and community safety plans are needed. A section on police officer activity and police calls to schools, totalling arrests and other activities from April 6 through June 18, 1992 is included. Records of campus monitor activity show differences between schools not necessarily related to student behavior differences. Student, parent, staff and community survey results are included. A list of 15 recommendations about the Safer Schools Program is also included. Appendices A through G include a school safety assessment of Eugene Public Schools, resources, Safer Schools surveys for students and staff, a Safer Schools survey business information form, and suggestions for an effective school crisis plan.
