Running head: SAFE SCHOOL POLICIES DESCRIPTION Safe School Policies Abstract One of the most important elements in schools today is developing and maintaining a safe environment in which students can learn. Without proper policies and safety programs in place, schools can become a dangerous place for children to learn, not only physically but also mentally. In this essay I will obtain various policies on safety from the state, district, and school levels.
