We have received strong interest from many schools who have requested to use the Certification Program as a guide for developing a safe and supportive school with the goal of becoming officially certified in the future. This is highly encouraged. The extent to which your school meets your state’s law requirements; and degree to which you go beyond those basic requirements by implementing the program’s eight elements with fidelity, could potentially expedite certification once admitted into the program.
We encourage you to submit the Interest Form below, as we may be able to certify additional schools in the future, and schools submitting an interest form will receive priority for any spaces available. Filling out the Interest Form will also keep you updated on resources we will be offering which include:
- Our Email Newsletter where you will receive updates about the program, news about safe schools issues, and ideas from other schools about what they are doing to improve their school climate; and
- Webinars with the Certification Program staff and other schools to discuss how to meet the requirements of certification and make your school safe and supportive.
