Perception of School Safety of a Local School
Massey-Jones, Darla
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
This qualitative case study investigated the perception of school safety, what current policies and procedures were effective, and what policies and procedures should be implemented. Data were collected in two steps, by survey and focus group interview. Analysis determined codes that revealed several themes relevant to the perception of school safety. The findings from the study suggested that some school safety problems existed, but 99% of those surveyed reported they felt safe. The majority of those surveyed, indicated they had received safety training. The interviews revealed that teachers and administrators should not carry guns on campus, awareness training was needed in the mental health area, training with first responders was also needed, and building access should be improved. Conclusions in this study were that a key to safety perception is to make it a priority, develop and implement a regular plan of maintenance, and schedule time to address safety needs.
