ABSTRACT

LLIS Innovative Practice: Oklahoma's School Safety Initiatives   [open pdf - 223KB]

"Oklahoma developed two programs--Safe Schools 101 and the Oklahoma School Security Institute (OSSI)--to protect students from natural and manmade hazards. Together, these programs protect schools from the dangers of tornadoes and enhance school security and response plans. […] In response to the deaths of school children caused by the May 20, 2013 tornadoes and the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Oklahoma developed Safe Schools 101 and OSSI to improve safety in public schools. Safe Schools 101 funds structural evaluations and safe room retrofits and installations in schools to protect students from natural disasters. OSSI provides school officials with security measures and active shooter training, administers a tip-line, and offers mental health support services to students."
