Safe Schools
and Culture & Climate

 
  Minimize

In 1997, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 187 (Education Code Section 35294, Statutes of 1998), which mandates safe school planning at every school site.

Schools are required to:

  • Assess the current status of school crime.
  • Identify programs and strategies to provide school safety.
  • Include the school's procedures for complying with existing laws related to school safety.
  • Include specifics on a variety of safety issues in its Safe School Plan.
  • Review and update the Safe School Plan annually by March 1.

The Comprehensive Health & Prevention Programs (CHPP) department assists schools and school districts in designing and reinforcing comprehensive safe school plans including effective crisis response preparation and procedures, by providing a variety of technical assistance services including site visits, workshops, and conferences.

Creating a positive school culture and climate requires a shared vision which fosters a positive learning environment.  Schools perceived as being positive, safe and nurturing enjoy a better student achievement.

For assistance to utilize California Healthy Kids Survey data as one measure of school safety, culture and climate, contact the CHPP department, and/or see:
