Safe and Orderly Schools
On a day-to-day basis, schools are among the safest places for our nation’s children. To ensure that our schools remain safe, it is important that school districts develop and implement sound policies and procedures. The Office of Safe and Orderly Schools has designed its guidelines and policies to assist those who are responsible for the health and safety of students and staff while they are at school, on school grounds, on their way to or from school, and involved in school-sponsored activities. The divisions that comprise the Office of Safe and Orderly Schools continue to stress the importance of successful, community-wide partnerships in the development of procedures and policies that most effectively support the operation and maintenance of healthy, safe, orderly and disciplined school environments.
