The Problem: School Safety Concerns (and what we intend to do)

1. Teachers who need experience/development- Educators who have individual qualities also bring a different perspective and are not willing to buy into the school vision. We must put a program in place to make certain teachers know the discipline code, are performing regular assessments, and are actively engaging in professional development. According to Sorenson and Goldsmith (2013), teachers have contact with students on a daily basis (pg.83), so the objective is to empower our teachers with the tools needed to teach our future students safe and beneficial solutions.

2. Rise of school violence/bullying- "Bullying just doesn't happen in the school, but on social media websites like Facebook and Twitter". Students are not speaking up about being physically mentally attacked by their peers/teachers/parents. These actions take away from achievement and learning potential. The students who bully are not being held accountable for their actions.

3. Lack of extracurricular/social activities-Not enough programs in place to assist in grooming the total student outside of academic development. We see a need to place this in the budget, but there are no available funds. According to Sorenson and Goldsmith (2013) "Our goal is to create possible strategies fundraising while ensuring it is within regulation and in the best interest of the school (pg.124)".
