Safe and Orderly Schools.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This skills packet is part of the North Carolina Helping Education in Low-Performing Schools effort. This initiative helps educators establish ties with technical-assistance partners who can facilitate school-improvement efforts. The skills packet, which was designed to be delivered by a skilled trainer, focuses on school safety. The 11 activities are divided into 4 sections: (1) defining a safe school and the standards needed to make a school safe; (2) conducting an assessment of school climate; (3) crisis-intervention planning; and (4) the impact of laws, rules, and policies on school safety. Each activity is formatted the same way. Following the activity number and name, a chart details the time needed to carry out the activity, its purpose, its setting, and the materials and equipment needed for the activity. The activities are geared primarily for small groups and require a high degree of participation. After the training, participants should be able to define a safe school; understand the standards for a safe school, including physical, social/cultural, academic/special programs, and parent/community involvement; conduct a school-level assessment of the climate of the school; write a crisis-intervention plan for their school; and understand how laws, rules, and policies affect school safety.
