Safe Communities Safe Schools (SCSS) is an adaptive model for school safety grounded in community engagement, capacity building, and data-based decision making. Safety is a product of every school’s individual climate, including settings, systems, and relationships. That is why our model supports schools to establish a diverse team of stakeholders who will collect and interpret data as well as develop, implement, and monitor an action plan specific to that school’s goals, culture, and resources. Balancing data-driven prevention and intervention strategies, the comprehensive plan reflects both community voices and student needs. Our research-based model is designed to build a school’s unique capacity to promote social, emotional, and physical safety—because every educator deserves a safe place to work, and every student deserves a safe place to learn.
