Taking into consideration that every child has the right to education there is the question on how to deal with the attacker. Should they be expelled or something more the safety of the victim should be the school 's number one priority. Policies need to be made that grant safety and a safe environment for victims of sexual assault. According to Rainn, 8% of sexual assault happen on school property.
Parents/carers of a child or young person being bullied at school could feel very distressed and alone on hearing that their child is a victim of bullying so it is important that they are given the same amount of respect so they feel like the matter is being dealt with in the correct way and in a timely
Prevention programs try to educate children about the signs of abusive relationship that can be seen before any physical harm has been done. Parents and adults need to understand that sexual abuse prevention (SAP) is not sexual education. SAP should be discussed with your children just like you discuss every day safety issues (Kozisek, 2014). Children and young people need to learn about sexual abuse and its risks in order to know when to protect themselves or tell their parents or any other trusted adult because they will then know they are not in a normal situation (Gordon, p.175, Kozisek, 2014). Parents fear that the talk about SAP with their kids will take away their innocence or making them anxious because abuse is a horrible thing (Kozisek, 2014).
If students are involving themselves in illegal activities such as consuming drugs, and their parents are not stepping in, the schools need to fill the gap. By identifying students who use, school officials can not only help students move away from criminal activity, but provide help to those who may lack parental support and better ensure safety for all students on high school campuses. Successful intervention can help young users and addicts move away from illegal drug use and find a long term focus in life, including a bright

It should be a safe and comfortable place for a child to grow up and prepare for later life but for some this is the exact opposite of the case. “in the last decade two hundred and four kids were murdered due to school violence – these were shootings, stabbings, fighting, and suicides” (Standberry). For a school setting especially, let alone any setting, this is very
Comprehensive Plan The educational sector in schools are often faced with the lack of supervision, whether it is due to non-compliance of rules, misunderstanding of rules and policies, or simply not being attentive to students. Whatever the reasons are for the lack of supervision, it is unacceptable and there should be a comprehensive plan in place to promote safety. Based on recent research and strategic analyses of a school along with reviews of literature, the development of a comprehensive plan was created to provide school staff, students, and visitors with a safe and secure environment. This paper will give in-depth information on this plan to align with case law.
Madison Rummel I feel that if it is our job to report it, we have to report. Kids or adolescents have to understand that if you go to someone about child abuse they have to tell someone about it. But I would make sure that child knows that i would be on there side and make sure nothing would happen to them and they can trust me on helping them on this issue. That's also can keep away the negative feeling the parent or client might have on the issue. I would make sure the parents know that i am their child's counselor and i wouldn't do anything to them that would harm them but protect them.
School shooting may be able to be prevented if parent’s start being more involved in their children’s life. Parents should be able to pick up changes in behavior and provide help to their children.

The matter of the fact is that we should never have let ourselves degrade to this point, but since we have, it is time to return. It is time to take drastic measures to have stronger school safeguards by having a stronger checking on school guests, having mandatory counselling for all kids or even arm teachers if need be. No parent should have a second thought about sending their kid to school, or spend sleepless nights thinking about their kids living at college. The National Association of School Psychologists had an article about ‘School Violence Protection’, giving a few tips on improving school safety.
It is also important to note that students have the responsibility to educate themselves on the situation and develop a better understanding of what aggression is. Parents have the responsibility of monitoring their child’s behavior and actions, especially when using the internet. Pediatricians have the obligation of informing and reminding parents about the dangers of cyberbullying. Once parents, pediatric doctors, and students fulfill their responsibilities of preventing cyberbullying, then these high school students have a higher chance of being mentally healthy.

There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are.

The Discipline Code requires schools to create an intervention plan for students who are disruptive and violate the code of conduct. Such interventions may include: counseling, guidance conferences and peer mediation. However, if the tried interventions are not working, teachers have a right, under the state’s “Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) law to have a disruptive student removed for a single period, a single day or up to four days (Chancellor’s Regulation A-443) which is found in the “Student Disciplinary Procedures” manual given to parents, children and staff at the start of a school year. The Chancellor’s Regulations state, “when a student engages in behavior which is substantially disruptive of the educational process
