  • Three keys to facility security
    By Paul Timm
    Every district's physical plant and school buildings require constant vigilance against complacency. Awareness, collaboration and the theories and strategies known as CPTED are necessary to ensure the safety of school buildings and everyone in them.
  • Instruct and prepare, then drill
    By Brandon K. Wright
    While it may be easy to view drills and reviews as routine events, that may not be sufficient to prepare staff and students for an emergency. Safety procedures and school safety drills require preparation, practice, and review.
  • Safety teams prevent, intervene
    By Rosario C. Pesce
    School climate and culture: Safety teams oversee procedures and programs that help create a safe, respectful, and inclusive school environment that builds social competence and academic excellence.
