Safe schools must be a priority in every community. Every aspect of educational safety and security is under review and school districts are contemplating best practices to employ to safeguard both students and staff. As leaders in creating safety in the built environment, the Association for Learning Environments continues to lead the discussion on developing a learning environment free from violence and the threat of violence. Maintaining a holistic approach that includes 21st century personalized learning, sustainability and community participation is of great import. Please join the conversation – in reality the safety and security of children is up to you!
