Safe Schools, Thriving Students: School, District, State, and Federal Policy

Safe Schools, Thriving Students: School, District, State, and Federal Policy - Wednesday, September 27 @ 1:00pm MT

School shootings have been steadily rising in recent years, adding to other longstanding concerns about school safety, ranging from fights to bullying. As students begin the new school year, there is widespread agreement that addressing physical safety threats they may encounter at school should be a priority—something Congress signed off on last year with the passage of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.

But how we ensure safe schools is a hotly debated topic. Should schools purchase metal detectors, hire police, or even arm teachers? Should they double down on zero tolerance policies and tougher disciplinary penalties? Should they increase supports for counseling and social-emotional learning or introduce restorative practices? 

In this webinar, national and state education leaders and policymakers will discuss effective policy approaches and high-impact investments that can help create schools that foster student well-being and academic and social emotional learning. They will explore research-based policies and strategies that point to effective ways to foster safe school environments, many of which can be supported by federal and state funding. The conversation will include findings from two recent LPI reports, Safe Schools, Thriving Students: What We Know About Creating Safe and Supportive Schools and Fostering Belonging, Transforming Schools: The Impact of Restorative Practices.
