Safe Schools Program 1994-1995. Eye on Evaluation. E&R Report.
Prohm, Bethany; And Others
This newsletter focuses on the results of Safe Schools Program activities funded by the North Carolina Center for Prevention of School Violence and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction from January 1994 to June 1995. These activities included conflict resolution and peer mediation, coping with anger, crisis response teams, a Continuing Education Incarceration Program (for students in juvenile detention), and diversity training sessions. Additional projects included the development of three model schools to devise strategies which could be useful to schools statewide. Results of these activities and projects included: (1) increases in the number of staff trained to deal with conflicts; (2) assignment of law enforcement officers to schools in order to provide security, hold parent conferences, make classroom presentations, attend school events, and work with formerly incarcerated students as they returned to school; (3) improvement in parents' perceptions of school safety; (4) slight increase in the number of suspensions for violent acts per elementary school student; and (5) stability in the number of violent acts reported.
