A new title in our collection on gun violence, Project Safe Neighborhood, Final Report, brings to mind that 7 years ago this month the Columbine shootings took place. Since then, there have been ongoing efforts in school safety, as illustrated by the following reports in our collection from various state agencies:
Child Abuse: Information for School Employees, 2006
Reference Guide for School Personnel Concerning Juveniles Who Have Committed Sexually Abusive and Offending Behavior, Dec. 2003
Colorado School Violence Prevention and Student Discipline Manual, 2004
Safe Schools: An Overview of Requirements, 2003
School Resource Guide Regarding Sex Offender Registration Information, 2003
In addition, check out CU Boulder's Center For the Study and Prevention of Violence web site, specifically the Safe Communities – Safe Schools Overview, where you will find titles on such topics as bullying, effective programs, statistics, etc, most of which are also available in hardcopy. Searching our online catalog will bring up all of the above, and more.
