Violence in our schools, whether it involves threats, fist fights, knives, or firearms is unwanted and intolerable. Children deserve a safe environment to learn in. Communities deserve safe schools that educate kids and help keep neighborhoods safer. To make our schools safer, everyone can and must pitch in. This includes teachers, parents, students, policy makers, law enforcement officers, local businesses, faith-based leaders, civic leaders, youth workers, and other concerned community residents. Attached you will find helpful suggestions for Students and Parents of what they can do individually and collectively to improve school safety; thereby creating a culture of peace.
