School safety involves identifying and implementing appropriate strategies and programs to keep students and employees healthy and injury free. A comprehensive safety plan incorporates prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Assessing the current status of school crime committed on school campuses and at school-related activities (Education Code Section 32280 [a])
Note: Although the statutory requirements for the School Safety Plan require an “assessment of the current status of school crime” (Education Code Section 32282, Title 5 California Code of Regulations Section 628.1, 701 & 702), the statutes requiring the reporting of school crime (Penal Code 628.1 et seq.) were repealed in 2005. For this reason, the statistics on school crime that were previously gathered through the instrument, “California Safe Schools Assessment,” are no longer available.
