Charter School Safety and Security
When it comes to charter school safety and security systems, Charter schools have a great challenge. Somehow you have to figure out how to do a lot with a little, and still be innovative and provide an improved learning experience.
How can Charter Schools provide the best safety and security with their resources?
Charter School safety and school concerns like: shootings, mental health issues, allergies, medical conditions, illicit drug use on and off campus, and natural and main made disasters, all are concerns associated with Charter School safety and security. Safety is a major concern for everyone who steps foot on school campus.
Turn on the news on any given day and you’ll quickly discover negative stories highlighting dangers found on Charter School campuses across the nation. Students are experimenting with drugs, hormones are raging, tempers are flaring, and it’s up to everyone to ensure dangers are anticipated, reported, and dealt with in a timely manner.
Charter school leaders are challenged by adolescents who lack good decision making, are unable to comprehend the consequences of their actions, and often times to not exercise good self-control. It comes down to a lack of connection between the frontal cortex and the limbic area.
Charter School Safety and Security are the responsibility of school leaders
Charter School leaders and security resources are ultimately responsible for the safety, security and issues that occur on their campuses.
The issues are obvious:
- Saves Lives
- Reduce Injuries
- Protect the reputation of the school
- Reduce litigation rish
- Criminal Charges?
Now that the Scot Peterson, security resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas Charter School in Parkland Florida is being criminally charged with child neglect and other charges, legitimate concerns from school leaders and resource officers about criminal charges loom. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/04/us/parkland-scot-peterson.html
