Safe Havens International recently completed its sixth statewide school safety assessment project for the Maine Department of Education. As we have done with previous state school safety assessment projects, our team agreed to work on a pro-bono project to supplement our work on the project. We are nearing completion of a free web-delivered guide which outlines twenty no-cost and low-cost school safety strategies based on our findings from school safety assessment projects around the nation. Drawing on their experiences in assisting with school safety assessments for more than 6,000 K12 schools, our analysts have seen specific patterns of school safety issues. The authoring team attempted to focus on twenty topics that are practical for the average school or district to address without a major budget impact.
We will post a blog with link to the guide once it is published.
