Schools are a safe haven for children. Schools are a place where children learn and gather knowledge. Unfortunately, with this comes risk. Schools are targeted daily by people who commit crimes and then leave the premises. It cannot be easy to protect students and faculty, but with these tips, you can create a safe school.

The first step is to understand the environment. If you know the environment, you can create a safe school. This is done by understanding the demographics, the school culture, and the community. You should also understand the school’s history. The school’s history should be evaluated to find the root problems. The root problems should then be resolved, and the school should be evaluated to make sure the issues have been resolved. This is important because it can be used as a reference when making decisions.
- The second step is to practice prevention
The second step is to practice prevention. Prevention helps to reduce the risks of accidents that could happen in the school. Make sure that you understand how to read a room and predict when a tense situation could snowball into an argument or violence. Make sure you have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to violence, so students know that it will not be tolerated, under any circumstances.
- The third step is to practice detection

You can also practice your escape plan with your family. Make sure to think about what you would do if you were stuck in a situation where you needed to escape. Practice your plan and make sure it is as realistic as possible. This will help you to become more confident and comfortable in case the need arises.
