Reducing School Violence: Building a Framework for School Safety.
Kadel, Stephanie; And Others
This publication is a revision and restructuring of "Reducing School Violence," published in 1993. This revised edition benefits from the assistance of many of the original reviewers, as well as additional experts and practitioners. The key to school safety is a comprehensive approach. This guidebook was designed to help teachers, school principals, district administrators, resource officers, students, parents, and others create safe environments in which learning is the primary focus. Sections present information on establishing a safe environment, developing prevention strategies, implementing crisis-management and intervention strategies, and identifying risk factors. The handbook also describes national, state, and local school-safety initiatives to reduce school violence and identifies issues such as domestic violence and protection of students' rights. A list of resources in the form of publications, guidebooks, curricula, associations, and institutes is included. Seventeen tables and an index are included. Appendices contain definitions, sample report forms and discipline contracts, and the Gun-Free Schools Act of 1994. (Contains 215 references.) (LMI)
