Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this authoritative resource provides a complete toolkit for designing and implementing an evidence-based school safety plan. Foremost experts guide practitioners to understand and prevent violence, bullying, and peer harassment in grades K–12. Best practices are reviewed for creating a positive school climate and establishing effective security and crisis response procedures. The authors describe ways to identify and support behaviorally at-risk students across multiple tiers of intervention, beginning with universal screening. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes reproducible planning tools. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
