Safe at School: A Public Promise. State Plan for Assuring Safety and Order in Illinois Schools.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
Parents and members of the public want safe schools that are free of violence. This document explicates Illinois' state plan for ensuring safety and order in its public schools. The plan contains 44 steps that are designed to commit the state to school safety; restore safety and order; implement conflict-resolution programs; prevent violence by confronting deeply rooted societal conditions; and develop administrative procedures for implementing, evaluating, and sharing information about school violence-prevention programs. The plan is guided by four major parameters: (3) educators and school districts need help; (2) both immediate and long-term strategies are necessary; (3) the local community must be the focus of action; and (4) resources must be used with maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
