Safe and Secure Schools Assessment. Public School Information. Legislative Report, 2008
Idaho State Department of Education
As a result of high profile shootings and critical incidents in schools on a national level, combined with the lack of a cohesive, standardized approach to safety and security in Idaho Schools, Superintendent Tom Luna requested an appropriation to address this issue and the Legislature allocated 5150.000 in FY 2008 for the Safe and Secure Schools Assessment. School safety and security has been identified as a critical issue, and the State Department of Education (SDE) has sought to capture a detailed picture of safety and security weaknesses and strengths in schools throughout the state. The SDE defined the scope of work for this project, which included access control, physical safety, structural layout and crisis response. A request for proposals was designed in consultation with the Department of Administration and released to identify the most qualified and cost effective contractor to implement the assessment. The assessment was conducted between August 2007 and November 2008 and produced a picture of the current security profile of Idaho schools. A separate Analysis and Evaluation is also included in this report. (Contains 31 figures.)
