Safe Schools

October is Safe Schools Month. The State of Colorado has established the School Safety Resource Center (SSRC), a state agency dedicated to helping schools become safe, positive environments for students and teachers.  The SSRC has numerous resources on its website, covering a wide range of school safety topics including bullying prevention; how to talk to kids after a violent incident; school threat assessment; suicide prevention; and much more.  SSRC staff has authored several guidebooks which can be found on the website or through our library; also, the website includes numerous streaming videos of conference keynotes.  Whether a teacher, parent, or school administrator, this is a helpful website for ensuring a safe school climate.  Additionally, check our library’s web catalog for more school safety resources from other Colorado government agencies.
