In the aftermath of the school shooting in Connecticut, I thought it would be a good idea to share some safe school resources. There are many out there. This is just a sampling.
The National Alliance for Safe Schools is a non-profit corporation founded in 1977 to provide resources, training, and expert advice on school safety.
California Department of Education Safe Schools Resources - This is the landing page for resources highlighted by the California Department of Education for Crisis Preparedness, Violence Prevention, and Safe School Environment.
Safe Schools/Healthy Students - This site is not only for SSS/HS grantees. It's a wonderful collection of resources for promoting a safe school environment. In response to the Newtown tragedy, a large collection of resources for helping children deal with tragedy have been posted on the home page. Click on the "Resources" tab for resources targeted toward violence prevention and developing a safe school environment.
The National School Safety Center was founded by Presidential Mandate by Ronald Reagan in 1984 but it functions now as a non-profit organization devoted to the prevention of school crime and violence.
School Safety Partners has been supporting schools in developing community partnerships to prevent and respond to school violence since 2008. Make sure your speakers are off or tuned down when you go to this site unless you want to hear the annoying little video that autoplays whenever the page is loaded. It's not that there's anything wrong with the video, just that you may not everyone around you to hear it.
This should get you started. I'll post more resources in the coming days.
