    The Center for Safe Schools has released a new guide: Returning to School Safely: School Safety Considerations for the 2021-2022 School Year

    As we emerge from a global pandemic, teachers, administrators, parents, and students are reeling from a year of virtual school, public health emergencies, civil unrest, increasing violence, social isolation, and family trauma. The events of 2020 have taken a toll on academics, social–emotional learning, and most importantly, on safety – but not just in a public health sense. This resource will examine some of the critical components of a successful return to school in the 2021–22 school year. As schools return, we must not lose sight of the foundational elements of school safety while also preparing for the new challenges this past year has presented. The initiatives and strategies discussed will assist schools in recovering from the trauma of the past and planning for a more successful future.
