A bill (A.B. 2809) pending before the California Assembly would require the state superintendent of schools to provide funds to school districts to promote school safety and reduce school violence. The bill would also require that the state department of education develop policies to prevent bullying and promote conflict resolution. The department would then make these policies available to individual schools.
This book provides a holistic approach to assessing the challenges involved in school safety through thoughtful pieces by the editor and 15 contributors. The book is divided into four major sections: school security, school safety, emergency management, and program development and execution.
