Anticipating and Managing Crime, Crisis, and Violence in Our Schools: A Practical Guide (Paperback)
In the wake of Columbine and 9/11, schools are now highly challenged to provide the harmonious environment of learning that is their obligation. Many school administrators are hard pressed to keep updated safety plans in the wake of every possible crisis. What exactly is the plan of action when there is a shootout? Does the intervention plan differ if the shooter is a student or a parent? What is the plan of action in the event of bio-terrorism? This book provides the answers to these critical questions. This step-by-step guide helps put in place a plan for each of these scenarios that we hope never to face again, but unfortunately are likely to. "This book, written by a school district administrator, is essential in imparting knowledge and in helping any school or district plan for arresting safety issues before they become dire problems and effectively responding when an incident occurs." - Diana Ohman, Director, Department of Defense Education Activity.
