School Safety 101: Preparing Schools and Protecting Students

School safety does not have to be expensive, but it must be a priority on every campus. School Safety 101 addresses all of the essential elements of school safety and security. Beginning with how to create a culture of safety throughout the school district, it presents proactive safety planning initiatives for school personnel, services for students who are at risk for violence, and the establishment of comprehensive threat assessment and response protocols. There is information on standard crisis response drills, and the importance of educational administrators working together with law enforcement officials to ensure school safety. With a chapter on the nationally-renowned RAIN model of crisis response, the book also includes an ESCAPE crisis response model developed after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
