Safe Schools Programs & Resources Guide.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of School Improvement.
The first version of this guide was developed in response to the 1993 Safe Schools Act that required the State Board of Education to develop materials, models, and curricula addressing school safety. It recommended the development of conflict resolution and mediation materials to address responsible decision-making among students; the causes and effects of school violence and harassment; cultural diversity; and nonviolent methods for resolving conflict. In keeping with these goals, this revised edition examines potential resources aimed at improving school safety and improving the overall climate towards a more achieving school. It begins with a description of curricula available that teaches alternatives to violence. The next section details Spotlight Programs from LEA Safe and Drug-Free School Grants. This is followed by a description of ongoing community drug and violence prevention programs for adolescents. A survey of safe and drug free school coordinators programs is included along with a list of promising alternative education programs. There is a section on centers and programs for conflict resolution around the country along with information on the mediation network of North Carolina. The resource section contains a list of books, articles, and organizations. (JDM)
