Safe Communities-Safe Schools Initiative
Initiative Description:- a universal intervention aimed at improving school climate by developing positive relationships among all school community members. The specific intervention program appropriate for each school is determined by a baseline assessment and, thereafter, evaluated through annual assessments. The needs of one school may call for life skills training for students, while a bullying prevention program may best serve another school.
Study Results: Reduced aggression when student feelings of school connectedness were strong.
