The Role of Parents and Families in Safe Schools and Crisis Response

Although incidents of school violence have declined over the last decade, high profile incidents such as those in Columbine and here in Pennsylvania have made it necessary for all members of the school community to address issues of school safety and crisis response. School district personnel understand the importance of prevention, and work with law enforcement and other emergency responders to plan in the event of an emergency. But parents and students play an important role as well. Parents have a vested interest in the safety of their children; this brochure was developed so that parents and families can understand their role in safe schools and crisis response.
