A new training program entitled the SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM which provides schools with federal level training to assist in securing Special Education funding has been announced today.

 

The new program trains and certifies school based personnel to audit their safety, emergency management and Special Education systems – known by the U.S. Department of Education as a Climate Assessment. This assessment provides important documentation for schools to apply for Federal grant monies.

 

EXPERT GROUP RELEASES LIST OF U.S. SCHOOL SECURITY ISSUES FOR 2011

The SERAPH Research Team which provides a biyearly school safety report for Congress has released its “FIVE CRITICAL SCHOOL SECURITY ISSUES list.

The list was developed from interviews with teachers, school security personnel, police and principals from 120 school districts throughout the United States.

  1. LACK OF ACCURATE UNDERSTANDING OF SECURITY ISSUES – Many schools and school districts have performed poor assessments of their school safety as it relates to everyday management of the schools.

Schools have security audits performed which focus on physical security such as cameras and emergency plans. These audits do not address classroom management, sub cultural groups, educational objectives, special education, negative behavior cliques and sexual issues.
