The President’s School Safety Commission released a detailed 178-page final report that examined ways to make schools safe for all students and teachers, by providing a reliably safe environment nationwide. Important recommendations on how to address school safety and violence are featured.
The studies highlighted best practices that may be of immediate use to stakeholders at the state and local levels.
So far, the commission’s new study that was released on Dec. 18 has received almost no attention from the national media.
“We must also work together to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life, that creates deep and meaningful human connections, and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors,” President Trump commented.
The Letter of Transmittal noted that no universal school safety plan exists that will work for every school nationwide. “Such a prescriptive approach by the federal government would be inappropriate, imprudent, and ineffective,” the report adds. “We focused instead on learning more about, and then raising awareness of, ideas that are already working for communities across the country. That is why the Commission’s work and recommendations focus on a variety of school sizes, structures, and geographic locations.”
“TSA offers a number of services to school districts and transportation providers on school bus security including guidelines, assessments, and exercise support,” the report said.
