School Safety Measures

Intermediate District 287 Layers of Safety

Layers of Safety

A comprehensive approach to school safety means that we must double down on the foundational trauma-responsive practices we know keep our schools safe, like trusting relationships with students, mental health supports, strong check-in and screening processes, and rigorous and engaging curriculum. The physical security of buildings is just one layer of safety, and we need many layers of safety working in tandem to optimize our safety efforts.

If you have any questions regarding safety, please reach out to your school's front office and they can put you in touch with your school's safety representative.

Intermediate District 287 follows a layers of safety model to provide the best care for our students.
