Utilize Resources ~ School Safety A~Z

There are so many resources on School Safety.  The key is UTILIZING the resources  and putting them into action by using the tools that are available to schools.

I have compiled a list of resources that should be available to school districts.  I hope your districts are utilizing them!

  1. School Board  (making polices on school safety)
  2. Safety Committee (See prior post)
  3. Partnership with Police Department and other State Law Enforcement
  4. Communication and partnership with news agencies
  5. Professional Development for Staff on Emergency Procedures
  6. Parental involvement
  7. Online information shared with school administrators to keep unto date on current events
  8. Data from Lock down drills
The tools are useless unless Utilized.

Did I leave something out? 

What other resources are your school districts utilizing?


  1. Oh so true Debra...any policies/safety strategies for schools/work/home are only as good as their implementation and training.

  2. Utilize isn't heard often, but it fits perfectly for your list.

  3. The biggest problem I see with our school safety is the lack of communication between administration and teachers. They need to tell us more when they're dealing with issues. Instead the teachers are the last to know.

  4. There sure are a lot of resources available for school safety. It's a shame we have to have so many.


I would love to hear your thoughts!
