Safe Schools: A Planning Guide for Action Workbook. Using the Seven-Step Planning Process for Safe and Effective Schools. 2002 Edition.
This workbook presents a seven-step planning process for safe and effective schools. Though specifically directed to schools in California, most of the components of the plan will pertain to schools everywhere. The workbook contains requirements of the California Education Code; many work sheets, sample forms, summary sheets, checklists, rubrics, matrices, and definitions; and an action plan for each of the seven steps. The seven steps in the planning process are as follows: (1) Identify your safe-school planning committee members; (2) create a vision of your school as a place where students are safe to learn, and base that vision on youth development; (3) gather and analyze data; (4) identify strengths and areas of desired change, and set major annual goals for each of the two safe-school components; (5) select and implement strategies; (6) communicate the safety plan to the public, hold public meetings for input, and keep the updated plan available for public inspection; and (7) evaluate your progress, revise the plan annually, and include the plan in your school accountability report card.
