What is a Safe School?

A safe school is a place where students can learn and teachers can teach in a warm and welcoming environment. It is a setting where the educational climate fosters a spirit of acceptance and care for every child, where behavior expectations are clearly communicated, consistently enforced and fairly applied.

USA Schools
America’s schools are among the safest places to be on a day-to-day basis, due to the strong commitment of educators, parents, and communities to their children. Nevertheless, tragic and sudden acts of violence in our nation’s schools remind us that no community can be complacent in its efforts to make its schools even safer.
