"These guidelines represent the beginning of a continuing team process to create safe schools for all of America's children. Making schools safe requires a total community effort within the context of a broad spectrum of opportunities. There are no simple solutions to making schools safe. Each school and each school district has its own unique challenges and resources with which to address them. This 'Action Guide' begins with action steps for schools, parents, students, and community and business groups. Next it provides information briefs on specific issues affecting school safety. Other sections contain research and evaluation findings, a list of resources, and additional readings. This information is all designed to help school and community leaders, parents, and students develop a strategy to ensure safe schools in their communities."
